Comet McNaught

I took these photos of comet McNaught last night (17th of Jan). Unfortunately the coma is a little blurred, its all because of the crudy auto focus on my mid range digital camera - anyone want to buy me a Canon EOS digital?

This comet is the most spectacular I have seen with the naked eye in about 10 years, and any comet with a tail like this one is, generally, a once in a lifetime experience.

McNaught was discovered by an Australian amateur around 12 months ago and is only going to be visible for another couple of nights - if you haven't already checked it out, your really should (it's even fairly easy to photograph).
