been following this guy, is an independent fully qualified scientist but does not sell out to the mainstream religion BS lies (NASA et al)

now he has just posted on some new data on ISON

What a dipshit. He's full of shit. ISON does not have any "companions." I'll tell what happened, he saw this image floating around on conspiracy forums like this one claiming it shows "companions" near comet ISON and he latched onto it:

These sorts of images often show asteroids as well as hot pixels, but those asteroids are nowhere near the comet, and the hot pixels are not even real objects at all. I'm betting he didn't even notice the asteroid at the top of the above image:

Hot pixels don't even form point-spread functions, which is why that dipshit McCanney exclaimed that it "hadn't formed a coma." The lack of a point-spread function means it's not a real object, it's just noise in the imager. Asteroids and other real objects in space such as 2002 TY164 do, however, making them easy to distinguish. Obviously McCanney did not realize that.

Well, the only way to know this for sure will be when it is closer to Mars, to us...etc Maybe from September we'll have a better data to contrast.
 Quoting: pstrusi

No, we already know this for sure, the astrophotographer himself confirmed it. It's hot pixels, end of story.
 Quoting: Dr. Astro

No, we know of the hot pixels, we can't be 100% sure ISON is alone until it gets closer is what they are saying.

And I agree, there could be things hitching a ride behind ISON.

ISON may also break up into several smaller pieces as it gets closer to the Sun. Noting ISON hasn't been "melted" yet by the Sun as far as we know.
