Holmes Revival

Johnny Horne from Sky & Telescopes Observing Blog captured this extraordinary example of comet 17P Holmes on 11/27 (when many websites reported it no longer visible to the naked eye). This is probably my favorite Holmes photo yet.

Check out the site and learn the details of how this photo was taken with a new Nikon D300 DSLR camera. Read, and learn from a truly talented astrophotographer!
