Comet ISON footage

For those who want to follow ISON through perihelion, head over to

SpaceWeather.com -- News and information about meteor showers, solar flares, auroras, and near-Earth asteroids

where they have footage of the event. ISON is still holding together and is now very bright although lost in the sun's glare.

I left it up to the mods to move it to the proper forum. I couldn't see where this one would fit. Since there is general interest from K-3 owners, that is where I put it.

Fair enough. I think I'd have probably posted off topic stuff in the General Talk forum.

General Talk - PentaxForums.com

But you're right, it is interesting stuff

Personally, I would much rather read this off-topic thread than that ridiculous thread, "why I won't buy a k3".

C/2012 S1 ISON is indeed quite a fascinating adventure. First it's dead, then its still sort of hanging on by a thread, its nucleolus is either gone, ripped apart and re-condensing, or none of the above. I am hoping it will emerge as something to photograph (with my new K-3) beginning around Dec. 6th.

I'll bring this thread back on topic. I am really excited about the low light capability of the K-3. Unfortunately, I haven't had an opportunity to compare my K-3 to my older K-5 and also test how the O-GPS-1 works with the K-3.

With the serious video limitations solved on the K-3, I am in full on love-mode for Pentax/Ricoh. I've come a long way since my Pentax Forum bitch sessions in regards to the terrible K20D low light issues and the forced DFS. I have since dumped my Canon and I am about the closest thing to a Pentax/Ricoh fanboy now.

Can't wait to get hold of my Pentax FLU card and really show off to my Canon/Nikon buds.

Seems the last remnant of ISON is burning up now. Pity. Back to Comet Lovejoy, I guess.

It seems that this comet has inspired poets as well, not only photographers and astronomers.

A Poem for Comet ISON


Comet Ison
Where’d you go?
Cause no one here
Seems to know.


Will I see you
Late at night?
From your death
Defying flight.


Frozen fireworks,
Rocks and ice.
To re-emerge
That would be nice


The sun is hot,
So now you know.
Around the sun
You should not go.


Poetry taken from the website Universe Today, and written by

anthony tymstra
