Faulkner Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Carl Faulkner
Location: Mt. Pinos, California
Date: February 2, 1997 13:20 UT

Image taken at 2-2-97 at 0520 PST as I was testing focus on a Nikon 500mm f 5 lens using 35mm hypered 2415, for a thirteen minute exposure; in between the clouds, blocking everything. The camera was piggy-backed on a C-14 fork mount using an ST-4 auto guider. This negative was projected on a wall using a small ccd camera to input it into the computer.
