C/2006 P1 (McNaught)

This comet has been the brightest one in the latest four decades. Miraculously, it once could be sought in daylight time, with a maximum magnitude of -6. After several failed attempts, fortunately, I caught this comet at 15:25 local time, Jan 14 2007, despite of very poor conditions.
