Comet 17P/Holmes on 11/8/07

This is tonight’s comet photo. I adjusted the levels to bring out the tail a bit more. As a result, this image is bluer than it should be. I’m starting to have trouble spotting the comet when looking straight at it. With averted vision it’s quite noticable still, but as it spreads out it is losing its apparent brightness. Below is my time lapse image up until now. I’ve started skipping days when the comets are on top of one another, but if you want to see the complete collection, you can click here.
