Comet 17P/Holmes on 12/11/07

Comet Holmes is getting huge! Even with my focal reducer, which shrinks the image by 33% (it shows 50% more) I still had to stitch a ton of images together to get this image of the comet. It’s about 4 times the area of the Moon (which I imaged earlier tonight). Tonight is so nice and warm and clear that I’ll probably be out here until quite late.
