Comet ISON - A final collection of images 
December 1, 2013

 As the comet did not survive its all to close perihelion passage, I am posting this final image of the comet, a collection of some representive color shots taken over the period it was visible all at the same scale and orientation. Most were taken with the 12.5" newtonian, but the last two were with the 80mm f/4.4 Stellarvue/Ziess APO and are scaled accordingly.
