Meade DSI1 / Meade LXD-75 8" (203mm) Schmidt-Newtonian. Captured in Autostar Envisage. Processed in AIP4WIN. Brightness, contrast, color adjusted in Microsoft Picture Manager.
Comet Holmes' coma has grown much larger and the central region much more distinct (i.e., pinpoint) since my first observations on October 27th.
