I saw Comet C/2022 E3 ZTF visually for the first time through binoculars and my 127mm Mak before dawn on January 27. Presently, it's near the bowl of the Little Dipper and similar in brightness to M13, the Hercules Cluster (about Mag 6). It has become an evening object as well. Perigee is on Feb.1, so now is the time to see it. The image was taken at prime focus, ISO 6400, single 10s exposure (you can see hints of the ion tails).
