Comet C/2012 S1 Ison: 14 Apr. 2013 image
Comet C/2012 S1 “Ison” is slowly approaching the Sun and the world is waiting for its potentially bright apparition late this year. The Virtual Telescope Project continues to monitor it
The image above comes from the average of 6 single exposures, each integrated for 300 seconds. For this, the PlaneWave 17 robotic unit was used. The telescope tracked the stars without any autoguiding. A little tail is very well visible.
