Play up the comet’s con­trast

A good way to cap­ture a fainter comet can be to imag­ing them

All About Space - - Stargazer -

If you know the area of sky that the comet should be found in, but can't find it with binoc­u­lars or a te­le­scope, an­other method is to use a DSLR cam­era. You will need a tele­photo or zoom lens and a tri­pod for this. Use the cam­era man­u­ally; hav­ing con­trol over the ISO and ex­po­sure set­tings is im­por­tant. Once you've set the cam­era up you can take sev­eral shots with dif­fer­ent set­tings to see which is best.
