Comet 103P/Hartley near M50 (and the Glory Fades)
Comet 103P Hartley is now much faded from it's glory days (see here for example). But it's been going through some interesting territory. Sadly, up until now when I have had time to image, the scopes have been clouded out or such, so I have missed a lot of interesting encounters.
