This morning I had more luck: the sky was clear from 4h in the morning. The technique worked. I could take the comet ISON S1 for a good half hour. And you can see a stall of the tail quite well. In order to display the core well, I did shots of 3, 10, 30 and 60 seconds. Where? In the CaƱadas del Teide on Tenerife. Technology: Canon F4/400mm to Atik 490EXcolor. 12 shots 60sec. 12 shots 30sec. 12 shots 10sec. 12 shots 3sec. 64 bit stacking in PixInsight

Whats going on at the back of the nucleus there? Is that a fragment do you think?

Fantastic image!

Would it be possible for you to post a single image which shows as much detail as possible in the nucleus? I am leading a group that is going to try and image the comet at radio wavelengths as it passes through perihelion, and your images could be very helpful in our efforts to target the main active regions near the nucleus.

Many thanks, in advance!
