Comet ISON viewing

Made an attempt to view Comet ISON this morning. I was probably a tad late but I did get my bearing, located Mars so I'll be ready the next clear morning. I may have been able to see it but the clouds here and there got in the way. I really think the brightness of the sky before dawn was the main reason. It is a 6.23 magnitude this morning which is dim so darkness is key. I'm using a freeware called Stellarium to locate the sky objects if anyone is interested.

Viewing will only get better through December and I hope to capture it with the camera the end of November through the first part of December.

Reading this morning it

Reading this morning it appears that ISON is brightening.  I sure hope all the hype plays out and it can be clearly viewed with the naked eye.
