We took a wonderful picture of comet Hale-Bopp between Bumbell nebula and globular cluster M71 in Sagitta-Vulpecula border. The image has been taken with a Schmidt camera, f.l.=300mm, aperture=150mm. Exposure time=10min at 9h10 UT on Feb 9 1997. The film used was PPF ISO 400 and we used XV on Solaris in order to improve the colors.
