Durig Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Douglas Durig
Location: Cordell-Lorenz Observatory, Tennessee
Date: March 7, 1997 10:40 UT

Image taken with a ST-6 CCD camera with a 60 mm, f/5.6 camera lens attached giving a 6x8 degree field of view. I used 10 exposures, each 30 sec long, and the track and accumulate mode. The middle time of the exposure was about 10:40 UT. The glow from the approaching dawn can be seen in the bottom left of the image.

Dr. Douglas T. Durig
