1. The Comet Hale-Bopp above the Fuchsturm (English: Fox Tower) near Jena/Thuringia, Germany. The picture was taken on April 7 at 21:30 UT using the standard lens OM 1.4/50 mm and 20 s exposure time on Fujicolor Super G 400.


2. This direct view of the comet was taken on the Canadas on the Island of Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain). The picture was taken on April 11 at 21:30 UT using the standard lens OM 1.4/50 mm and 20 s exposure time on Fujicolor Super G 400.


3. A wide-angle picture from the same location as in 2. In the foreground Pico de Teide, which is with, 3714 m above sea level, is the highest mountain of Spain. Above the mountain, the Orion constellation can be seen. The neighbouring island La Palma with the lights of the coastal towns as well as the plejades and the comet are visible on the righthand side of the picture. The picture was taken on April 14 at 22:00 UT using the wide angle lens Tokina 2.8/24mm and 40 s exposure time on Fujicolor Super G 1600.


4. The same viewpoint as in pictures 2 and 3. This picture shows the neighbouring island of La Palma, which, at the horizon, looks as if it were two separate mountains; as well as the planet Mercury (above the right mountain shining throught the clouds) and of course the comet. The picture was taken on April 12 at 20:30 UT using the standard lens OM 1.4/50 mm and 15 s exposure time on Fujicolor Super G 1600.
