8P/Tuttle on 2007 December 12

Comet 8P/Tuttle on 12 December 2007, in an image by Frank Freestar of Hudson Valley, NY. He wrote: "I finally had some clear skies to image this comet, which was a nice change from Holmes. This is a stack of 25 2m exposures with a C11 at f/10 and SXVF-H9c camera. Guided with compensation for the comet motion, which helped show a hint of a tail at the lower left (south east). North is up and east is left, and the field is approximately 8 arc-min wide."
