Comet 168P/Hergenrother

I observed comet 168P/Hergenrother yesterday, at October 6.88 (UT). Instrument: 20 cm Newton, 120 x. Location: Lund, Sweden. Sky: moderate quality, city lights.

The coma was estimated to be 0.5′ and the magnitude 9.8 (Tycho catalogue comparison stars). The comet was compact and easily detected; no tail was seen.
