Second View of Comet C/2012 S1 ISON

This weekend, at Canyon of Eagles, we stayed up to the early morning hours and imaged C/2012 S1 ISON for the first time since last winter.  The star in the image is Sigma Leonis at magnitude 4.  The comet head is about magnitude 10.

No telescope this evening, only camera lenses.  Image is a stack of 12 frames, each 300sec with separate stacking for stars and comet head.

Canon 60Da, EF 70-200/f4L,  ISO-1600, f/4, 200mm, 12 x 300s

On this trip, we also took a few deep sky images:

NGC-6992 West and East Veil Nebulae

IC1848 Heart and Soul Nebulae
