I also missed you last night. I hope your daughter is feeling better today. I had a look last night at comet Faye in Bob's 15" & Paul's 10" Dob's. I was surprised to see a tail. I can't say I saw any green color though as I was not dark adapted when I was looking. I had been in & out of the museum all evening.
Antares sells an 7x 50 mm RACI finder scope that accept the Antares 1.25" 27 mm Kelner x-hair. I'll have try my 7x 50 mm with a 1.25" light pollution filter and see how that works. I'll let you know how it turns out. Maybe it's a solution for you looking into your western skies a little easier...
