Comet Garrardd--HOASP 2011 passing M71

A single 5 minute exposure of comet Garradd in M71. The determined exposure was to be 2 minutes, however on the night I assigned to imaging the comet, clouds played the devil and only this single 5 minute (from the previous night) is usable. As such the coment nucleus is distended a little -- a little like you may find in drawings of comets in sci-fi books, just before the aliens invade or similar.
