Sorry Cheesy but you still can't see ISON with the naked eye or a regular camera. I know you're excited, but that's just the truth.

This guy's photo is wrong, ISON was in a different position (closer to Mars).

Stellarium screenshot (set for Harrisburg, Oct 19th):

The photo, with ISON's correct position in red circle:

From the photo page at :


I tried to see Comet ISON, but faile to detect it, with my 12x50mm binoculars. I photographed the comet at 5:00 am, EDT, in Harrisburg, PA home. 30-second exposure, with my Canon EOS Rebel T3 digital camera, with 18-55mm zoom lens, at 55mm.


Nope...Cant say that I see the comet in that image. I believe the rather large circle would need to be moved up just a tad bit higher - but even then, the faint blips I do see are likely stars. Too many things going against you in this image: equipment, light pollution, and high thin clouds.

A 30-second exposure is way too short to capture such a faint object like ISON is right now. Try 3-minute exposure under very dark skies, and you might catch it.

When ISON is bright enough to be photographed with a camera, photos will pour in from everywhere!
When it's visible to the naked eye, I think we will start hearing about it on TV news and in the newspapers.
