Comet 17P/Holmes

Comet 17P/Holmes

Image of comet 17P/Holmes taken from my backyard in Victoria on Nov 21, 2007. The moon was nearly full and the burst of activity in the comet was fading. Nevertheless, the image still shows a lot of detail. This image was also my first with a new Astrotrack. The star images indicate the tracking was very good.
