Holmes comet 56 days after the outburst
If it were not for long period of bad weather, I would not try to take comet Holmes images during the
foggy night with the comet being not far from the brightly shining Moon. The comet was invisible in
the bright sky and it was a big problem to find it on the Canon EOS 5D display. Finally, the result of
processing 59 particular images and 58 dark frames was over my expectation and worth the effort.
