Halakhot Pesukot online

I just noticed that the (former) Sassoon manuscript of Halakhot Pesukot has been digitised and is available online. It's a manuscript from 10th century Iraq. If I remember correctly, its collation doesn't conform to the Gregory rule. This manuscript is Matthew Morgenstern's foremost example of 'Grade A EEMss' (Early Eastern Manuscripts). Parts of it are vocalized with Babylonian supra-linear vocalization. And now you can read it in the privacy of your own home (without even having to purchase the Jerusalem 1971 facsimile edition).
