OK - I might have time to take a look tonight . But when I look at the equipment those guys in your link used, I am not very optimistic. I hope I can even find that thing with my telescope.

I looked hard but couldn't see a thing. The sky was clear, but I think there is just too much light pollution in the city.

All I can see right now are clouds, we're hit by the first real autumn storm right now. I'm prepared for a few days witout power supply. Water in the tub, agood stock of candlesand woodfuel for the stove. But if the sky clears I have no problem with light pollution, since I live in a deep rural area. 400 mtrs to the nearest neighbour!

There has'nt been a word about the comet in the Swedish papers, so I guess that you're right about us being too far north though. A petty, but Halley will be back inonly 60 years!
