First test with the C150/NGT and the club's DSI camera : 17P/Holmes 3rd Nov.

This single 30 sec image of 17P/Holmes is the very first test imaging with the 150 mm Newton telescope and the DSI camera. Due to the very rough polar alignment, star trails are evident even with this short exposure. More (and much better) images of the Holmes comet can be found here
