Equipment
Telescope setup made specifically for this. I credit Lodestar for being able to track on the comet, still quite weak for guiding. C11-HD with Lepus reducer into STF-8300M. Guide scope was 102mm DIA f/3.5, on CGEM mount.
Description
Comet ISON with trailing stars gives one the idea that the comet is streaking through the sky. Had to "white knuckle" wind gusts that throw my laptop on the ground just before the ISON capture. More detail at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/edhiker/10317377173/ Ed Johnson
