Image of comet Hale-Bopp taken October 6, 1996 at 20:18:15 e.s.t. A 12" lx200 at f/10 was used with an sbig st7 ccd. The image is a track and accumulate composite of 24 ten second exposures, guiding on the comet nucleus to reduce star smearing. The raw image was processed with lview and a little false color added. The location here for our pier mounted scope is Center Valley, PA.
