Tracking Comet ISON

Not real good seeing conditions but I did manage to get a few
images(for stacking purposes)before dawn. I used M81 to check my telescope alignment prior to shooting ISON. Only had
a 15-minute window for ISON between clearing my trees and having too much pre-dawn skylight. Looking at the real time tracker a bit later I noticed a satellite track that I also captured in one of the images. ISON is still quite faint (magnitude 10.48) but is getting brighter.
