Comet 217P LINEAR this morning 2017 August 11th from my home observatory here in SE Essex. The comet was low in the east and in a bright nautical twlight sky.
I took a run of 60 second images, unfortunately all but five were spoilt by cloud.
Its got a decent tail on it. I'll have another go at this one when the weather improves.
