I took this photo of Comet 17P / Holmes at 10:15 p.m. on Oct. 30, 2007. This comet is visible with the naked eye, it looks like a "smeared star" (presently near the constellation Perseus). This is an amazing comet because it has greatly increased in brightness over the past 3 days. This photo has been lightned to better show the comet and stars. I took it with a 300 mm telephoto lens. I don't have a tracking motor, so the stars are a bit stretched due to the long exposure time. I'm going to have to get a camera adapter for my telescope! See the following photo for a better view.
