Re: (IAAC) Comet 7P Pons Winnecke
I have not yet tried to observe this comet, but it will probably require at
least a 6" scope to get a positive sighting. It may be magnitude 11.2 now
(due to brighten to about 10.6), but being a diffuse object this magnitude is
deceiving, as the light is spread out over a substantial area.
Good luck - perhaps with a larger scope.
