I had a break in clouds long enough to take another image of 17P/Holmes. There was light haze so the sky was brighter than normal. This probably prevented me from imaging the outer halo and tail.

I also constructed an animation comparing the size of the comet between the dates 11/06/2007 and 11/14/2007.
