Holmes update

These shots were taken about 8:30 p.m. tonight. Both were with a Canon XTi -- additional details are below each picture.
The Comet appears to be less bright than a week ago, but much larger.
Tomorrow I'm going with Les to Crex Meadows in Wisconsin; hopefully we'll bring back some bird pictures.

300mm lens, f/4.0, 30 sec., ISO 400, about a 50% crop

Celestron 8" telescope, 2000mm, f/10, 30 sec., ISO 800, full frame
