At about 19:50 we found it on my dobson. Hmm... I better check the time because this seems quite late. 19:52 says the EXIF timestamp of my first photo of it. Maybe it was a bit earlier... Anyways here it is.
Whoa! Or not much to see... Depends on how much you respect the astronomy itself. That photo is actually not the first. All the photos through my dobson were more or less blurred. This was taken with 75-300mm zoom lens at max zoom. Maybe I should have shot a video through the dobson, like I do with planets.
Couple minutes after really seeing the comet something happened. I saw "clouds" on recently clear sky, or at least I thought I did. The "clouds" turned green and the show started. All the previous Aurora Borealis I've seen had been faint and required a bit of imagination to see. This one did not. The sky was flashing green and purple so fast my camera couldn't catch it. I saw arches, rays, something that reminded me of a scifi movie "warp speed".
