Last night, after the Moon as a big light polluter,had set, I could take some photo's with my f4 Newton telescope and Nikon D300 camera. The coma around Comet Hartley is growing, but from my location near a city, the sky is not dark enough to see more details. I also took some wide-field photo's with a 80-200 mm Nikkor f 2.8 lens. On these some Perseus starclusters appear.
