Okay, I've finished the mission.

I have to confess I had to edit the comet, because the 1.5 navigation system simply won't show you a transfer to a 12.5 m radius body. So I made it 1250 m radius. Still, it was a pain to get to it...

Okay, so the rocket:

Errr... I meant, the shuttle.

In LEO:

Deploying the payload:

And the landing:

So, the game showed me the transfer window this time, but I couldn't get the encounter. So, I circularized in high Solar orbit:

And navigated to it just like you navigate to craft you want to dock with...

Look how laggy my trajectory is:

And finally...

Here we are:

In the surface of Comet Lovejoy.

After that I simply burned back to Earth:

That is Mission Completed for me.

If you want I can share you the Planet file I used for Comet Lovejoy.

Well the challenge wasnt hard because you made it larger maybe try making SOI larger by editing its file to make possibility to land on original 12.5 meter comet. Also nice Shuttle :)
