Images of comet Hale-Bopp taken of March 3, 1997 by Yvan Bourassa and Dominique Beauchamp from MaestroniX inc. (http://www.maestronix.com) at Observatoire Alphonse-Tardif. We used a Schmidt camera for the first image, a 50mm in piggyback for the second and a tripod for the last one where we can see the observatory. Moon was 90deg away from the comet. Notice how PPF is sensitive in the red by looking at North America Nebula.
