Hi Guys,

Delighted to get these images of Comet ISON this morning. Image stacked on stars and image stacked on comet.

Thanks Michael,
I used a SkyWatcher Equinox 120 Scope and a SX H16 CCD Mounted on a Losmandy G11. Nine stacked 90 sec images.

I can't understand the circular shape to the right of the comet tail. The position was RA 11 29 51 Dec +4 3 41. Maybe a reflection but I did not have it last week with the same optical train.

That's a great job Bruno, well done.

Tried getting ISON on Sunday a.m. but low hazy was thwarting my efforts. Shame, because the zenith was remarkably clear. Did get some nice Orionids and Geminids mind you.

Thanks Seanie. I had a narrow window because of the trees on my eastern horizon and sunrise.

No problem Manic_Dave, you can use it anytime.
