Hi all, i found a free ebook that some of you may want to read. jim
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CB1OEZI/ref=kinw_myk_ro_title

*update* I am about 50% through this ebook and i am impressed. A very good write up on how comets are being discovered today with digital linked telescopes.

how can there possibly be enough information on ISON yet to fill more than a few paragraphs? Seems a bit premature...

Wikipedia+NASA+Google = book? Admittedly, this is based on not having read the book yet, will browse thru later today. There's a sticky on this forum about these wiki books, this one is free though.

Okay then, quick update - looks like my initial response might be a little far off - there's quite a bit more in the book, and more or less it uses ISON as a springboard to comets, NEO, history, etc. Looks to be original content (written in a style of a long web/printed article), and author has a rather interesting forward and list of other books he'd written. Planning to browse thru a little more for sure. Now, there is another kindle book on ISON, but that's 99
