...... has ISON at mag. 14.2 , I think that is incorrect , it must be more like 10 or 9 .
The Moon is higher in the shy at 5:30 am than the course line shows . It is actually slightly above ISON's course line , where as Regulus and Mars are almost exactly on Ison's course line ...
ISON was an easy find this morning because of the Regulus to Mars to ISON almost perfect straight line .
I hope to catch it tomorrow morning also . It's so small to me and only the perfect clearity of morning sky (like this morn.) will allow that .
Good luck up there , light washing and muddy sky doesn't sound too good for you right now .
Be really neat if ISON survives the Sun and comes back by . That could be a show of fantastic , even seen by the naked eye with it's long tail ... hoping !!
If that happens , a canoe would be a great place to see it an hour or two before the Sun pops over the horizon .
I was looking at Andy Z.'s post cause he was out on his lake before Sun up yesterday ... he may have been able to spot ISON from shore with field glasses .
