This image is a track & accumulate of seven, sixty second exposures taken by the Kopernik Astronomical Society at the Kopernik Space Education Center in Vestal, NY using a .5 meter Richey-Chrieten and an ST-6 CCD on 03-31-96 at 03:50 UT (We believe you can see the fragmented nucleus).
Due to the comet's size we have been shooting it mainly using 50MM lenses, schmidt camera, etc. on print/slide film & will be digitizing these soon.
