different optics.

The big one was with a TMB Refractor 20cm and 2010 F. and the smaller one
with a binocular 12 x 80.  The night was esplendid, the place was located in
La Hita Observatory in Toledo (http://www.lahita.arrakis.es/). With
binocular I could see an halo around the comet, very very pale but visible.
With the telescope was possible to see stars through the comet.

I hope you enjoy them.
