here is a very nice image of Claudine Rinner and Francois Kugel with two comets: a 15P and 17P rendez-vous at December, 08 2008


David Bender took a series of four images of the weak comet 17P/Holmes at December,30 2008.
The magnitude of around 18 is brighter than usually expected in this distance. The comet is still smoldering its last outburst of  November 2007.
