C/2014 E2 (Jacques)

I observed C/2014 E2 (Jacques) with 15×70 binoculars tonight. Magnitude was estimated to be 7.0, using the Sidgwick method and an AAVSO sequence of comparison stars for the nearby V0465 Cas, coma diameter 6′. The observation has been reported to COBS.

The comet was very easy to spot and showed no tail. Observations with my 90 mm Maksutov Cassegrain at 50x and 187x showed no tail, and the comet appeared brighter and larger with the binoculars than with the telescope.
