After waiting for weeks for the comet, waking up every hour since 3 a.m., I get frustrated this morning and I setup my telescope in the garden. Cloudy, but still keeping hopes. It rains!! I remove my jacket and cover the camera and telescope. Get an umbrella and cover the rest of the telescope. Still cloudy, I see a star, point my telescope, collimation is disturbed. After collimation I see a clear window near the comet. I point my telescope and quickly snap photos. Took about 40 of them with clouds playing tricks and got a few shots.
