Comet C/2014 Q2 Lovejoy 29 December 2014

Comet C/2014 Q2 Lovejoy sketched under difficult conditions, very cool and windy with clouds. The moon was at first quarter.

The comet was close to the faint magnitude 8 globular cluster M79. In the moonlight it just looked like a faint star but I was surprised to see that it was there (and my star positions and relative magnitudes were not too far out) when I checked against Stellarium
