A Comet-hunting we will go...

..Finally, successful we will be.

After earlier bad experiences with cloudy skies while trying to view Comet McNaught, we finally got to see Comet 17P/Holmes last night in a clear sky, prominent to the naked eye in the constellation of Perseus.

It's time to brush the dust off my camera manual and see if there's a way of photographing something that's in broad view in the night sky, clearly visible from our front windows. I had little success yesterday and want to get my pictures before the dreaded clouds strike again.
