Pentax K100D at prime focus on a JMI NGT-18 newtonian. 10 seconds at 1600 ISO.
Taken on Concordia College's 18-inch Newtonian in south Moorhead, it's Comet Holmes during a star party we had for students. Most had never seen a comet before, especially this nicely through a telescope. You can see a little of the orange haze of light pollution creeping in.
