Karoline Herschel comets

I am inspired by the Herschel family. We all know about William, who lived in Slough to be near the King at Windsor, when he was Astronomer Royal. His sister Karoline was his able assistant and she also discovered 8 comets. So I thought I would illustrate 8 comets in the evening sky as a tribute to her and to all other women who are behind great men!
