I imaged T7 last night. The two-pronged tail is prominent. There are
two magnitude 15 galaxies in the same FOV.

I imaged the comet down to 17.4 degrees above the horizon. The comet
is much brighter which seems aid imaging at low elevations. At these
low elevations I am troubled more by sky glow than by atmospheric
extinction. This is especially true now that the ground is white with
snow.
