Another evening where I was busy with other things while it was clear out. Given that I had a little bit of free time I wandered out with the Meade 10x50 binocular to have a look at comet Holmes.

Pretty fine night, a small hint of mist. No Moon.

Comet 17P/Holmes

From: 2007-10-31 21:25 UT
To: 2007-10-31 21:45 UT

With the naked eye comet Holmes looked more or less the same it did during my previous observation. At a rough guess I'd have said that the brightness was again similar to that of Delta Persei.

With the binocular the view was a little different to that of two nights ago. While the overall view was the same the variation in brightness that I'd noted seemed press pronounced, less obvious.
