C/2012 S1 ISON with FSQ-106ED October 16, 2013UTC

Tail length was about 20 arcminutes at the night. North is up.


The length was about 4 arcminutes on September 16, 2013UTC. It got longer by 5 times in a month.


This 1,395 x 970 - pixel frame is cropped of full 5,634 x 3,753 - pixel frame. If I use a scope with focal length about 2.1m, I may be able to take a frame of this scale without cropping.
