It was fantastic to meet the famous comet ISON finally. We were only able to observe it from heavy light polluted area in the centre of Moscow. However the comet was clearly visible in 15x70 binocular as faint green smudge close to Spica. The dark line on the photo is a post lamp wire. Light clouds were present during image capture. They are visible as pinkish haze.
Camera: Sony SLT-A57, Lens: SAL135F1.8. 90 2 s. exposures.
