Observer: David Renneke
Location: Milan, Illinois
Date: May 10, 1997 02:48 UT

20 sec exposure, 85 mm lens, 3.71 x 2.33 deg. Picture taken at a rural Milan site. I used a 28 - 85 mm zoom lens at f/4 on an SBIG ST-6 CCD camera guided by a telescope. The comet was a distance of 1.926 AU (178 million miles) from Earth and 1.142 AU (106 million miles) from the Sun. It was at an altitude of only 4.7 degrees.
