I had another look at the comet in between two bad weather fronts. Found a more sheltered spot this time to setup the Vixen Polarie with Canon 5Dii and EF 135mm/2L lens. But it was still pretty cold with temperatures around freezing and force 6 winds (windchill -7°C). While observing the comet with binoculars, a very slow, distinctly orange-coloured, magn. +1 meteor appeared. Succeeding images show the persistent train for another 3 minutes.
First image of comet Lovejoy. Fortunately the very strong winds did not affect the image too much. The comet was visible with the naked eye. I estimated the comet at 4.3 (S) with a 3×12 Zeiss monocular. A hint of the tail could be seen with the 3×12 as well. (Note the disconnection event in the tail!)
A lunar halo caused by high clouds composed of ice crystals. This halo was visible for about 15 minutes.
