Has anyone seen this comet? I have been clouded out and smoked out in Alpine.

Hi Keith,
Well its been a bit frustrating. First I made equipment and configured the 2 domes for comet ISON, the comet of the century. Next I configured things for the spectacular meteor shower. I am a little frustrated by our collective lack of ability to predict things. So its back to a more flexible setup for the summer constellations... The 8" F/2.6 and a 8300C one shot color camera for comets and a dual astrograph, in design, for wide field imaging 9X12 degrees at a time, attached is a sketch of the astrograph...

I hope to post some images soon...
