The first image is a tri-color image taken at 11:10 UT on 02/23/97. It is the result of 14, 21, and 60 sec red, green, and blue exposures with my 7" f/9 refractor at f/9 and ST-8 ccd camera. I have the center of the first image processed at a larger scale and enhanced to show the structure around the nucleus.
