NEOWise is now circumpolar. Just after midnight - almost at the lowest place in its daily path. It looks better in binoculars - I just put the camera on the tripod.

If you want to go out: The 30° tail which appears in Stellarium is deceptive - at least inside London. The core is a tiny spec, so a longer telephoto lens (~200mm) is more appropriate (which I did not carry with me... 🙁 ). And as you can also see, exposure time matters. 

Let's hope it's clear again tonight...
