Observing Comets

Comet ISON appears to have disrupted as it passed close to the sun. But that's ok. For decades amateur astronomers have sat by until the news media anointed a bright comet to observe. Yet on just about any clear night at least one comet is visible in a 4-inch telescope, and right now there are three!
