Comet C/2006 P1 McNaught

On Saturday, January 13th I noticed that the sky was very transparent and thought it might be worth taking an image of the comet in broad daylight.

I was excited when I was able to to see the comet with small binoculars and then also with the naked eye at noon. (My wife saw it first without optical aid.)

A bunch of neighbours and some other persons walking by did also see it with the 80mm refractor, some small binoculars and with the naked eye.
