Object Name : C/2012 S1 ISON
Object Type : comet
Location : Béziers, south-west France
Date : November 20 2013
Media : graphite pencil, white paper + PhotoPaint
The moon was almost full, the sky was not dark enough, so the tail was shade off and fairly not visible.
Only a bright star could be seen in this area.
The turquoise colour of ISON comet was (R.I.P.) very nice, with a very bright dot as shown on the skectch.
Equipment : 300mm Telescope + 24mm Ultra Wide Angle eyepiece
Sketch was made with pencil on white paper while observing the comet on the road side before sunrise.
A bit of image processing was used to invert the image and give it some colour.
