Three images of the Hale-Bopp that I have taken this morning. The sky was fairly veiled and affected by light pollution, but the images, I think, are goods. One of them has been processed with a software that I have developed by myself: it is visible the whole coma extention.

First image is a 8 minute exposure taken with a Reflector 15 cm f/5, CCD SBIG ST-7.

Second and third image is a 12 minute exposure and have been stretched with sqare root function.
