On 26 Feb 2019, I managed to make a short video ~30-35 seconds of:
Comet C/2018 Y1 (Iwamoto) passing in Auriga on 26 Feb 2019 ~21:00 and swiftly going away, having already passed its nearest position.

Supposedly ~13.20 magnitude and one of the last frames got also a Aurigidis and supposedly to be inactive!

It was practically passing over M36 M37 M38 going towards M35 and under 37 Auriga – I am correct.

All info according to ‘The Sky Live’ website.

Note:
if you cannot play or even see above video on Internet Explorer 11 or older –  install Firefox  and import from Internet Explorer – Firefox is a much better browser and safer too!

C/2013 US10 - Comet Catalina - 10 Feb 2016 - 22:25UT Tested with non-modified camera - normal 30s shots at 12800 ISO !Re-edited in August 2017 and got better... I am surprised I got part of the tail better. You can also see the huge aqua-marina coloured halo surrounding the Comet which I did not manage to take as it was only a 30 seconds with a non-modified D7000 and my first time on a Comet The reddish at bottom and right side is light reflection from building and neighbour external light!
