My First Images of Comet 2012 S1 - Dim, But There!

When a dim comet or asteroid is captured in an image, the only way to confirm the object is to compare several images taken over a period of time.

By taking several photos during the course of more than an hour, I've captured and confirmed my first images of Comet 2012 S1 ISON.  At this point the comet is at magnitude 17.9.

The photo above is enhanced.  The photos below are raw materials, with only information and pointers added.
