Details:
Hartley is getting BIG - almost resembling a green "baby-comet Holmes", with a large coma, a bit bullet-shaped and in the same place in the sky as great 17P Holmes were. An easy binocular target, but still I haven`t seen it with the naked eye. Nikon D3, Nikkor 300mm, 3x1min + 2x30sec, ISO 3200.
