Soligor 6" MT-750 Newtonian reflector at f/4.9, Canon PowerShot A420 digital camera
A single 1 second exposure of Comet 17P Holmes taken on 28 October 2007 using a Canon Power Shot A420 digital camera set to ISO 400 coupled to a 6 inch Newtonian reflector. I was fortunate to have at the time of the exposure the Moon entirely covered by clouds and the comet as well as the rest of the sky completely free.
