Comet Holmes detail 8 days after outburst

During the night I took 24 images with Rubinar 10/1000mm and Kinotelex 2× converter i.e. with 2000 mm EFL. The presented resulting image is processed composition of seven sharpest images of them. The image shows very well the neighborhood of comet nucleus and faint jet coming out the central condensation.
