Observer: Juergen Knobloch
Location: Jura Mountains, Switzerland
Date: April 16, 1996 20:45 UT
Image taken on April 16 from the Jura mountains near Geneva. The comet tail comes out quite nicely - considering the modest equipment. 200mm lens f/3.5 1000 ASA Ektar Kodak film. 6 minutes guided exposure (just before the comet set behind a tree). The photo was then corrected for flat field using Photoshop. The picture was taken at 22:45 local time (20:45 UT).
