Just had to share these in case anybody's getting worried about ISON being a dull splodge in the sky ....  ;)








Let's hope it survives its little encounter with the Sun and emerges intact ....  :)

Wow... Where did he capture these images?

At home in the UK or somewhere more exotic?

Great images all the same.

Looks like he is using a Planewave 17 and STL11000.  Not sure of the location. He is from the southern part of England I believe.

Actually ISON has become an EXCELLENT binocular target now. Find Spica at dawn and it's right there for the next couple of days. Also comet Lovejoy is another great binocular view between Leo's head and the bottom of Big Dipper's pot.
