Attached is unique image of the "cometary hoods" of Comet Hale-Bopp. It was taken with our 20" Richey-Chretien, the neagative was then heavily processed photographically to bring out the detail in the hoods, the resulting print was then scanned with a flat-bed scanner and processed again digitally.
I have not yet seen any images of the cometary "hoods" on the internet, and we hope you and your readers will find the attached image of interest.... As to the technical data:
