Comet Holmes

A beautiful (freezing) night last night (10th December) and comet 17P Holmes is still putting on a fantastic display for us.

Compare the size of this with the image a few posts ago (8th November)! It's now full frame on the Canon (approximately 2 degrees across I think).

750mm f.5 with Canon 300D. 11 x 2 min exposures @ ISO1600.
