Comet 17P/Holmes time lapse from 10/26/07 and 10/31/07

Here’s tonight’s version of the time-lapse image I’ve been taking over the past week. I think tomorrow’s image (assuming it’s nice enough to take one) will start to encroach on tonights as the coment continues to get brighter. I actually took about an hour this evening to capture all of the sky around the comet so that we can see this are of the night sky in greater detail. I’m planning on continuing to do this until I can no longer see the comet easily. I’m hoping this will be in a couple months since it should create a really neat image over that time period.
