Wow, another great shot there John.
Dave, I guess it's just good old registax wishful thinking. :wink:

Have you been observing this beauty much thru the Dob?
I'm getting the 12'' and the ETX set up for tonight.
Fingers x'd the weather holds.

Beware the dark side of comet Holmes! I just went out to have a look through my 10x50s and as I heard the door slam I realised that I didn't have my keys with me! I didn't have my phone either. So, I ended up borrowing a hammer to smash in my own window :(

And here's tonight's Holmes - similar to last night's but perhaps a little more diffuse, and with different background stars :-)

Doohh!

Anyway, I had a good long stare at this thing with the naked eye and it is definitely not as pinpoint as the stars near it,
does it look diffuse to anyone else or am I seeing what I think is there ?
