Tonight I used my 7D with 70-200 at 81mm. Comet was so low in the sky tonight. I didn't expect that so it took me a while to locate it. Once I found the comet I was good to go.

No wonder many of us missed it last night. The diagrams I saw showed it appearing above the moon all week! Last night was the only break in the weather we got, so ... oh well.

Nice shots. I was out last evening, and I knew to look for the comet below the Moon, but the clouds rolled in just as it was getting dark enough. Will try again tonight.

I agree! The diagrams showing comet's location by the Moon on various dates was very misleading.

nice shot. That thing is hard to spot even when you're looking in the right place.
