Yen Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Bob Yen
Location: Mojave Desert, California
Date: March 9, 1997

This is a telephoto shot, using a Nikon 300mm/2.8 EDIF lens on 35mm. It has about same FOV as 300mm FL Schmidt Camera image. Note how the color shot inherently "spectrally distinguishes" the ion tail (blue) and dust tail (yellow).
