This 30 second exposure of Hale-Bopp was taken at Stockport observatory about 80km north of Adelaide, South Australia on 1997 May 10.38UT using Kodak PPF 400 with a 50mm lens at f/2.0. The 3 day old moon is at upper right. I was fortunate in that someone's car headlights illuminated the observatory while I was taking the shot. It turned out to be my best image.
