Thanks Cove314 for the comet photo.  It gives one a good idea of its relative brightness and size.  I see a dimmer image to the right of the comet.  Is this an internal reflection or something else?

Too bad the comet is so low, perhaps it will get better later as it rises further up.  It does not look as prominent as Hale-Bopp back in 1997:
