Comet Africano (2018 W2)

I got another image of this comet last night. It's now up to 9th magnitude, and moving quickly through Andromeda.
So quickly that I had to re-point my 'scope mid-way through the imaging run!

Last night I had another go, this time using my Sony NEX5R camera on my 80ED refractor:
