Comet C/2009 R1 (McNaught) In Early Dawn Skies

This green comet is going to be an excellent backyard telescope target until July 2/10 when it gets too close to the sun. It is a very early riser, though.

It rises after 2AM in the NE. At the same time a crescent Moon is in the east and Jupiter and Uranus are very close together in the SE. I am going to try to get some pictures, if the weather co-operates.
