Comet ISON

Clear and cold night

Captured about 50 images of comet ISON between 6am and 6:30am
Wed. morning. Earlier I used the moon as a focus guide and Orion to check the telescope tracking. The image of ISON is a single 20 sec.(ISO 1600)shot taken at prime focus with a Celestron C102 refractor (the others will be stacked later). The image of Orion is a single 30 sec. shot and the moon was taken at 1/320 sec. with an ISO of 100. Also obtained some shots of Mercury and Jupiter. Probably the last chance to see ISON before the (possibly) fatal trip around the sun.
