more of Holmes

Last Spring I couldn't stop taking pictures of ducklings -- this Fall it's the comet Holmes.
All of the pictures are taken with the Canon XTi at ISO 800.

Holmes is at the lower left; the bright star in the upper right is Mirfak in the constellation Perseus. 200mm, f/2.8, 4 sec.

Celestron 8" scope, 2000mm, f/10, 4 sec.
