If you have clear skies it's an easy naked eye find down below Capella. From a dark sky you can even see the tail easily.

Yeah, the closup was with a 653mm fl. I was a bit bummed I couldn't capture the entire tail. Going back out again tonight with a 380mm rig.

Here's my attempt for this morning. I had a lot of light from a car dealer and shopping centers in the direction of the comet.

Lovely shot! What time of day/night here in Europe and in which direction? Maybe I can catch a glimpse.

For now, early morning before sunrise (0400-0500). Look to the northeast. In about a week, look northwest in the evening.

I always have fun pushing my 70D and 18-135mm lens to the limits, but I sure wish I had better gear for these types of images.

Northwest Indiana 7/13 just after 4am (I should have been at my location 30 minutes sooner!)

I hear this is now visable in my location just after sunset too (around 10pm in the NW sky!)

The first one that is more what it appears to the "naked eye" (slightly enhanced due to length of exposure) I will pick a better foreground tomorrow morning or next clear sky morning.
