Comet 8P/Tuttle on 26 December 2007 in image by Hunter Wilson of Lexington, Ohio.

He writes: "At the time of this image, the comet was located at: RA: 01h16m37.63s DE:+44d50m30.1s in the constellation Andromeda and it was magnitude 6.2. I used a Canon 350D Hap Griffin Baader Mod, 13x180sec at iso 1600, with 30 Darks/Flats/Bias, on an APM TMB 130/780 Refractor with AP Field Flattener. This was first light with the APM refractor. Guided on the comet nucleus with PHD guiding and imaged past the meridian with EQMOD control."
