Comet Hartley2 Still going Strong!
Comet Hartley 2 is still going strong, a pretty blue green fuzz ball with large Coma and still hovering around 8th magnitude. This is a 10 minute exposure on 11-09-2010.
The comet image was taken with my 5 inch diameter Newtonian telescope &
a Canon Rebel Xsi DSLR Camera, set at ISO 800.
I've been traveling a lot on business lately, so
I just got around to processing these images.
