C/2007 W1 (Boattini)

 Comet C/2007 W1 (Boattini)

 

Not much to say, just a fuzz ball, although it was fairly large as fuzzballs go.  I managed to locate this comet while at a fairly dark-sky site (Danville).  Needing a second drawing of it, but not wanting to drive an hour out and an hour back, I chanced locating it from our local semi-dark (western sky anyway) observing site the very next evening at Broemmelsiek Park, just 15 minutes away.
 
This comet was seen in FOV's that had no named reference stars noted in my Herald-Bobroff star atlas.
