Astronomers anticipate ISON’s arrival

WHEN Comet ISON was discovered by amateur astronomers in September last year it was quickly dubbed the comet of the century.

Dr Roy Spencer is watching it, producing a time-lapse video, here: Comet ISON time lapse, Nov. 11, 2013

November 11th, 2013

This is my third attempt at a time lapse video of Comet ISON from this morning, Nov. 11, 2013, near New Market, Alabama.

I used a Canon 6D with Canon 200mm f/2.8 lens with Canon 2x extender, at f/16, ISO 1600, 77 60-sec exposures. Tracking with Astrotrac on a Ravelli tripod. Temperature was about 43 deg F.
