I'm sure Sir Edmund Halley would prefer his surname to be spelt correctly and capitalised

there are many many periodic comets from periods of a ~ 10 years to many 10's of years

No probs :)

back to your original question, was there a particular reason for it ?
ie. are you interested in knowing what other comets you may see in a telescope?
or were you just curious ?

if the first... then doing a google search on periodic comets will yield sites with lists of them
their orbital periods, when they last were visible and when they will next be visible.

cheers
Dave
