As Comet Holmes has become more diffused, it is becoming more difficult to image it with a small camera. This enhanced and cropped photo was the result of stacking nine 30 second exposures. . The camera settings for the nine exposures were: ISO 400; F-3.5; 20 mm focal length. The nine exposures were taken between 5:54 and 6:05 pm, CST on Nov.16, 2007.
