Is ISON a binocular object?

Posted By Dave Erickson

Here is an image taken at 5:05 am as a reference. Should be close to when you were observing. Its a single 6 min exposure using a yellow filter. The comet is a little over a degree north of mars. Regulus is about 2 degrees south of ISON... North is to the left...Hope this helps...

OH the smudge on the Mars side of Regulus is the Dwarf Galaxy Leo 1...

Linear, Encke, ISON, Lovejoy Oct 27, 2013

Posted By Dave Erickson

I was up at the site and using 10X70 Binoculars was able to see comet ISON with a small tail. Very dim but visible. Sky Darkness was 21.6 at Polaris
Looked for Lovejoy, too dim, Encke thought I saw it but it is very stellar and can't absolutely confirm. Linear was too low and dim to see... ISON was clearly visible...
