Protopapas Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Chris Protopapas
Location: Lexington, New York
Date: March 16, 1997 09:20 UT

This picture was taken from my back yard in Lexington, NY on Sunday morning, March 16 at about 4:20 AM, using a Pentax K2 camera, 55mm lens @ f1.8, approximately 20 second exposure on Fujicolor800 SuperG film. The camera was piggybacked on a Celestron telescope, which explains the large fuzzy shape on the left of the picture.
