These are two images of Comet Hale-Bopp obtained at the times indicated. A Cookbook 245 CCD was used without the low noise modification. A Meade 8" f/6.3 LX200 was used for the exposure with no guiding during the exposures. The exposures were four minutes each.
For each image, a dark field was subtracted and a flat correction applied. The images were then median filtered and then the pixels were made square. A log enhancement was applied to each of the images.
