It was very difficult to take pictures of 2012 S1 ISON this morning with the crescent moon right next to it in the sky. After a little bit of processing I assembled this animation showing the motion of ISON over about 30 minutes through the telescope.
It's not great quality because ISON is still just so faint. It's hard to believe that this little comet is expected to put on a great show at the end of next month!
This is the best I could do under the challenging moonlit conditions in terms of a still image:
Should be able to get some decent images at the weekend or next week when the moon leaves the morning sky.
