At last, some clear sky! :D
I managed to image the comet for an hour last night, before it disappeared behind a neighbour's roof:

I managed to get some images of this comet from Bolton over the winter, but since it passed perihelion in April it's been better-placed in the Southern sky (during their own winter, of course).
It's currently around 6th magntiude, in the constellation of Microscopium, and after a week of failed attempts (due to wet & windy weather in New South Wales), I finally managed to get an image of it from Siding Spring:
