This photograph of Comet Hartley 2 (103p/Hartley)and the Double Cluster in Perseus was made from 6 stacked images using a Canon/Hutech 350D camera and an 11" Celestron telescope with a Starizona Hyperstar 3 System. There was a nice contrast between the green comet and the bright blue stars speckled with a few fine orange stars in these clusters.
