Urbina Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Moises Urbina
Location: San Salvador, El Salvador
Date: February 23, 1997 11:00 UT

This is my first photograph of Comet Hale-Bopp; I took it on Sunday Feb 23, 05:00 a.m., with a Cannon Eos Rebel camera an a Tokina 70-210 mm telephoto and Asa-400 film, f/4, 30 seconds. This picture was taken on a static tripod mounted on a street with public lighting. I send it to you to invite everybody to go out and see it; you don't need expensive optics, just a camera and a good north-east view.
