1. 21 separate 50 second images of Hale Bopp have been flat fielded and combined to create this image. The image was obtained using a 12 inch Maksutov with 1524mm focal length and no filter. Image is 31.1 by 20.7 arc minutes. This is an integrated white light image. First image started at 05:30 EST with the last image started at 06:00. Stars look trailed in this composite image, since it was effectively guided on the comet's motion
