Observer: Douglas Durig
Location: Cordell-Lorenz Observatory, Tennessee
Date: March 12, 1997 10:30 UT

Two renderings of an image I took this morning. The first has been processed to show the two tails and the other just shows the main structure of the comet. Both are from a track and accumulate combination of 10 different 30 sec exposures aligned on the comet taken at about 10:30 UT . I used a 60 mm f/5.6 camera lens attached to a ST-6 CCD camera.
