35 mm SLR (film!) camera, f/2 50 mm lens on tripod, 15 sec exposure, ASA 400


This is a scaled comparison of ISON, West and Hale-Bopp. The ISON image is cut from a lovely photo* that was on a well known website today, and above the full photo were these words: "ISON lives up to the hype." Knowing when/where it was taken, and that Mercury was in the photo, it was easy to present the three comets at the same scale. Hopefully it will be closer to the hype after perihelion! *Taken by KAGAYA on November 22, 2013 @ Yamanasi,Japan
