A few photographs I've taken:

Comet Hartley in Cassiopeia October 3, 2010

This image is from a Canon D20a with 50mm f/1.8 lens, 15s @ISO 3200.

Camera piggybacked on an FS102 piggybacked on a C14 / CGE mount.
The excessive weight / moment of this setup probably caused the slight image shift.

Below is an enhanced image showing the comet circled in red ...

 Comet Holmes taken 2007-Nov-01

Taken with a Canon D20a exposure was 5s @ ISO3200, I believe this was taken through the FS102.

M81 and M82
