Details:
Here in Northern Arizona the sky was perfect, transparent and dark between 4:30 and 5:00 am this morning for a shooting session with the three objects. Here is a full frame shot with my Canon Xti at ASA800 for 10 minutes (1 min subs) with an 80mm f/4.8 Zeiss APO. the comet was NOT visible in the 11 x 80s perahps due to its location within the zodiacal light. The comet is VERY faint still, maybe around mag 11.5 or so.
