Lodriguss Images of Comet Hale-Bopp
Observer: Jerry Lodriguss
Location: Voorhees, New Jersey
Date: February 25, 1997 10:29, 10:25 UT
First image is a 4 second exposure at 10:29 UT on 25 February 1997.
The comet was photographed on un-hypersensitized Fujicolor Super G 800 Plus
with an Astro-Physics 130 EDT f/8 refractor working at f/6 from the front
lawn of my house in Voorhees, NJ, which is a suburb of Philadelphia. This is
through quite a bit of light pollution from the city and suburbs, and the
gibbous moon was also in the sky.
Second image is a 30 second exposure at 10:25 UT on 25 February 1997.
