Comet 17P/Holmes October 26 2007

Comet 17P/Holmes October 26 2007

Friday offered another opportunity to view Comet Holmes and to image it this time with the Meade DSI Pro. My hopes were to better define the structure of the comet head area. By now the gaseous halo had enlarged. With this set of images I was able to make the pseudo-nucleous more distinct along with its surrounding area.

Telescope: Televue NP101is
Imager: Meade DSI Pro
Exposure: A stack of 30 frames exposed at f/5.4 for .5 second.
