Iatesta Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: John Iatesta
Location: Brasstown Bald, Georgia
Date: March 12, 1997 10:05 UT

35mm Pentax MX with 135mm f2.8 lens on Fujicolor 1600 for 2 minutes. Guided on comet nucleus.

Extraneous: I modified an FJR series II camera drive ( about $300 - to include a hand controller ), added an Orion short tube refractor as a guide scope, and mounted the camera on the counterweight.
