Comet ISON 10th Nov.
Posted by Timthelder on Monday, November 11, 2013 8:53 AM

Hi all,

Pulled an all nighter Sat. night shot some Jupe videos and had a go at ISON.  This is only 6 unguided subs, the star-field was stacked in DSS, (it wouldn't register the comet for comet stacking)  For the comet I manually stacked it it Photoshop CS3, then combined the two images.

It's brightening right along, but I don't know about "Comet of the Century."

 

Cheers, Tim

Much appreciated Ray and Chris. Yup, just another way to skin a cat! (It's only a figure of speech, no cat's were actually harmed in the skinning of this image.) Cheers, Tim.
