My view to the North is blocked by trees, so I hadn't seen Comet Holmes until Tuesday night, when we went up to Mangrove Mountain pony club for some dark sky time.
The view to the North there was pretty good, but there were still trees which blocked about 4.5° up off the horizon. We got our first visual look at the comet through binos, and wow it was large, but diffuse at the same time.
So here's Comet Holmes, at 12:40am 14th November at 5° altitude. Unfortunately trees still blocked most of the view, because the refractor is shorter off the ground than my height - so even though I could see it clearly while standing, the refractor could not.
Anyway, the trees give it a bit of atmosphere.. I would've liked the comet to have cleared the trees but i'll take what I can.
Images taken with the ED80 & 350D, guided with the DMK. The first 1 is a stack of 3 x 60s subs. The second shot is a single 90s exposure just before it went behind the club-house at the Pony Club.
All @ ISO800.
I'm not sure if i'll get the chance to image this again, but I'll certainly try and get out again to take some widefield shots.
