Russel Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: A. Russel
Location: Fry Canyon, Utah
Date: March 25, 1997

Running behind schedule on the way to Glen Canyon National Recreation Area in Utah, I stopped at a remote spot called Fry Canyon (population 6!) and took this shot in deep twilight on the night of March 25. The fuzzy oval patch near the left side of the frame is the core of the galaxy M31 in Andromeda. 58mm f/1.2 Nocturnal Nikkor 35 sec. at f/1.7 Fujicolor 800 (CZ).
