Comet C/20009 P1 Garrad August 25 (Near M71)

Comet C/2009 P1 Garrad near the globular cluster M71 on August 25. Click to embiggen, it's a large file, but worth it.

The comet is pretty close to the cluster tonight, so if you have a small telescope go have a look. A chart showing C/2009 P1's location is here.

Image taken with the Global-Rent-a-Scope G-14 instrument, 3 x 120 sec luminance exposures stretched with FITS liberator and stacked in Image J.
