Seventeen 8 second exposures (800 ISO / Canon 100 mm f/2.0 lens @ f/2.2 / Canon T2i) were stacked using Images Plus with some light post processing work in PS. I think when the moon sets I will finally drag my equatorial mount out at 5 am and do this fuzzy blob some justice!

Attached are four taken the morning of November 3 within hours of each other. Each is a single 6min Exposure using a Sloan Yellow Filter and the 4.5" F/4 astrograph. Image scale is preserved. Linear is 8th mag, Encke is 7.8mag, ISON is 8mag and Lovejoy is 10th mag...
I think its amazing there are (4) reasonably bright comets appearing so close to each other in our sky.
Left to right comets: Linear...Encke...ISON...Lovejoy

Same night I viewed ISON in 10X70 Binoculars...
