On the 24th October 2007 this 17th magnitude comet suddenly brightened to mag 2.7.
That's something like a 1,000,000 fold increase in brightness!


This is my first long exposure with my Toucam SC1.




Tracking was good tonight and no wind allowed exposures of 18 seconds, although M57 was rather washed out in the glare of a bright moon.
