To track the comet as it approaches its rendezvous with the Deep Impact spacecraft, you'll need a telescope with about a 60mm aperture or larger. Bigger is better. The larger the aperture, the more light the scope gathers, and Comet 9P/Tempel 1 is a dim object, nearly 40 times dimmer than can be seen by the unaided eye.
