ISON had an outburst-11/14/20 UPDATED
      #6194613 - 11/14/13 01:37 PM Attachment (118 downloads)

Apparently ISON has had an outburst overnight, and I just happened to have clear skies to capture the comet. Here's a very quick and dirty process in LRGB. I plan to do a better process soon. This is 4min in each channel (2x2min).

Wow, this could get interesting as ISON continues its long fall towards the sun.

Here's a re-process, keeping the stars intact. The galaxy is NGC4697.
It won't be much longer before ISON is out of my range as well. This image was shot about 18 degrees above the horizon, and I'm guessing my neighbor's house takes up about 12 degrees from my OBS perspective. So, this one might be it until ISON comes around the sun (here's hoping it survives!).

Best image I've seen of ISON period. The tail detail/jet is so razor sharp and crisp, excellent job!!!
