I’ve finally bagged a new comet after almost 2 years since I shot my last one, which was Comet Lovejoy.   This one is small and dim at the moment, but it has a neat tail.

Comet Johnson is predicted to get better with the best views coming this summer.   So far, it looks like it will be an easy target for the next few months.  I’ll probably get more images of this one as it develops.
