Comet Garradd - 2011 September 02 - by Kos Coronaios

4.5-minute exposure at 10-inch prime focus

The Coathanger is the large scattered asterism below the comet, and the small smudge at the tip of the Coathanger is the open cluster NGC 6802.

Note the comet's rapid motion by comparing this image with the one Kos took on Thursday.

nothing more to see. please move along.
