Images of Hale-Bopp comet taken on February 16 1997 at 10h30 UT by Denis Bergeron (Quebec, Canada) with a Criterion 4000 SCT 4" F5 (FL:500mm). A CCD camera SBIG ST6 was used and the exposure was 60 sec. The sky condition was not very good because a thin layer of clouds covered the comet. The blue color of the comet were added to increase the look and are not the real color of Hale-Bopp.
