Sloan Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Brett Sloan
Location: Wichita, Kansas
Date: March 10, 1997 11:30 UT

Image was shot Mar. 10, 1997 at approx. 5:30 AM CST. Pentax Spotmatic Fw 200mm telephoto. Kodak Ektapress 1600 ~5-10 sec exposure, unguided. Scanned 24 bit and contrast enhanced in Photoshop and resized to make it smaller. This is no match for the wonderful pics from the guys with the good equipment but shows that a rank amatuer can get a passable shot.
