Bradford Robotic Telescope, Tenerife, Celestron 14", V filter, 5sec

Description:

The image, taken remotely with the Bradford Robotic Telescope, shows the Comet 17P Holmes with inner bright region, a prominent glow around it and an extended outer halo. The small point spread functions of the rest of the stars in the field demonstrate that the halo is not a seeing artifact, but a real extension.
