Bergeron Images of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Denis Bergeron
Location: Quebec, Canada
Date: March 13, 1997 08:00 UT

Image of nuclei of Hale-Bopp comet taken on March 13, 1997 at 08h00 UT by Denis Bergeron (Quebec, Canada) with a Meade SCT 10" F10 (FL:2500mm). I use a CCD camera SBIG ST6 and a number of 13 images exposed 2 sec were taken. All the 13 images were added and processed by unsharp masking. The blue color of the comet were added to increase the look and are not the real color of Hale-Bopp. The image is very similar as we can see now when you observe Hale-Bopp with a telescope at high magnification.
