Comet 103P/Hartley2 
On 4 October I got my first view of a comet that's been raising hopes among amateur astronomers of seeing a brightish comet in our sky.

I still haven't seen Comet 103P/Hartley2 in binoculars, but I saw it the other day through my Megrez 80 telescope and captured this image.

This is a stack of 14x40second images, stacked using Deep Sky Stacker and processed using PixInsight LE.

The night was humid and hazy and getting more hazy - I tried to capture some more images through colour filters but by then the humidity in the air had increased to the point that even brighter stars were looking like comets.
