Ison Photographed with a 4" refractor telescope

An amatuer astronomer has photographed Ison using just a 4" refracting telescope. Even more amazing is he did it TEN days ago! This is the smallest telescope we've heard of yet viewing Ison, so well done Peter Lawrence!

Peter Lawrence took this photo of Ison with a 4" refractor telescope

"I photographed Comet ISON on Sept. 15th using my 4-inch refractor," reports astrophotographer Pete Lawrence of Selsey UK.  "The comet's tail is nicely on view even through this relatively small instrument."
"Here's a rough stack of images from the morning of 15 September showing Comet C/2012 S1 ISON imaged with a CCD camera through my 4-inch, f/9 refractor."

Have you seen Ison yet? If so we would love to here about your set up!
