Comet McNaught seen from Dubbo

Over the last couple of weeks the Comet McNaught has been able to be seen in the South West sky of Dubbo, NSW. I went outside expecting to spend 30 minutes searching for it, but it was obviously visible to the naked eye and you could not miss it if you were looking into the western sky.

Here are some photos:
