Finally the moon was out of the way and the skies were clear. Earlier this week I was fighting the wind, trying to use my telescope (took me 45 minutes to find the comet). Tonight the wind was even stronger so I decided to use the Vixen Polarie Star Tracker. The Polarie performed flawless despite the strong winds (and temperatures just below freezing). Darker skies made the more easily visible in binoculars. The dust tail starts left of the nucleus and spans an area of over 100 degrees (clockwise).
The third night in a row with more or less clear skies. Had to wait till 18.50UT for the comet to appear from behind a cloud.
Tonight the comet was easier to spot due to better sky conditions. Still very windy and cold. The comet was briefly visible to the naked eye on 2 or 3 occasions.
My dad and I observed comet Panstarrs from the Oostvaardersdijk (52.4,5.2E) overlooking Amsterdam. Using 8.5×42 binoculars I first noticed the crescent Moon and quickly thereafter (18.15UT) spotted the comet. Managed to take a couple shots despite a very strong wind.
