Observer: Craig Brown
Location: Sterling, Virginia

Both images were taken with an 8" f10 SCT / SBIG ST-7, and Lumicon f6.3 focal reducer from Sterling, VA on Feb 25, 97 at 10:16:24 Z. Both images are the same picture, and one (high.tif) has a brighter setting that shows more of the tail, and some jets. The second image has the brightness reduced, and shows more of the comet itself (reduced size), with local shock wave.
