Comet ISON by Pat Knoll, Taken 2 Oct 2013

Photographer:  Pat Knoll

Equipment:  Meade 10" LX200 Classic - ST8-XME - prime focus - 6x3 minute images Luminance bin 1x1 - 1x3 minutes each RGB bin 2x2.

Comments from Photographer:  ISON just cleared the roof of the neighbor's house. It was in the atmospheric soup and at morning twilight so the sky was pretty bright.  Sky was so bad even Mars had a twinkle. It is still at magnitude 10.
