We are only about a week away from the close approach of Comet ISON with the planet Mars. I was out in the backyard this morning around 4AM trying to spot the comet. Unfortunately it is still very faint (around magnitude 12) and the waning moon is still very bright and interferes with observing. I'll keep watching and hopefully will be able to record Comet ISON with the StarSplitter video system.
I have been excited about space since I was young, and have been involved in astronomy for over 20 years. I have built 4 of my own telescopes and continue to design and experiment with new instruments and accessories.
