Photo: Comet Holmes

I’m pretty amazed at my digital camera, a Sony Cybershot DSC-P73 I’ve had for a couple years.

I bought a cheap tripod at Best Buy yesterday, and tonight I went out and took a picture of the comet. 30 second exposure. It actually came out very clearly! In fact, several stars are visible on the picture that were too dim for me to see (Phi Perseus, 34 Perseus, HP 16147 for example).

Check it out:
