Ison is now so close to the sun you will have a hard time seeing even a wisp of the tail as the sun rises. Of the comets I have seen, Comet West back in 1975 was tops. As Ison swings pass the sun (at 224 miles/second!) it's path will transit into the northern skies close to Earth. In early December Ison may be seen still in the morning and should be prime. Below is a good shot of what I feel it looked like prior to sun approach.
Saw a cool show on PBS other night about comet ISON. It rounds the sun on the 28th. most experts thought it wouldn't make the trip. be cool to see though. Did you not see Hale Bopp ? Way cool except for the Heavens Gate people.
