Hi Tony Attached are several images of comet 17P/Holmes which I took last night. I walked several miles into the country and spent several hours imaging this wonderful comet. Holmes was an absolute joy from a dark sky as it hung over the dark tree tops in the silent night. It was easily visible with the naked eye with M34 and Algol nearby. It's amazing to think that this comet is sill visible with the naked eye after 2 months! Fujifilm S6500 6.3MP at ISO800 30 sec at F/2.8
