October 2010: Hartley 2 and the Double Cluster

Postby Pete Lawrence » Fri Oct 08, 2010 1:10 pm

A fortuitous gap in the clouds occurred last night (7th) and despite poor transparency, the close encounter between comet 103P/Hartley and the Double Cluster was visible to my camera...

Don't forget to look out for this close encounter tonight (8th)...

I've seen many astro photos but that is one of the best. What a stunning shot! Well done Pete.
