Description
Comet ISON, shot Saturday morning, near Bucharest. Photo taken with a Canon EOS 5D and a Pentax 75 SDHF telescope on a Fornax 10 mount. 5 x 30 s + 32 x 60 s + 10 x 120 s at ISO 1000. The comet was a pretty difficult naked eye object, but very easy in binocs. Now, we only have to wait and hope it will survive the perihelion.
