Comet Garradd's morning apparition is gearing up with it better placed for imaging and some interesting flybys coming up, such as the Feb 3rd, 2012 flyby of Globular Cluster M92. It was only in the last week that the comet is high enough above the trees and muck of my northeastern sky for me to shoot some images. If the weather cooperates, I'll be shooting it every clear moonless morning that I can, including the upcoming Feb 3rd flyby.
