Comet Hale-Bopp Animation By Terry Platt


MPEG movie of almost one full rotation of the core of H-B. It was taken on the evening of March 28th - morning of March 29th, between 19:00UT and 04:50 UT. The instrument was a 318mm Tr-Schiefspiegler reflector at F20 + a Starlight Xpress colour CCD camera. Each exposure is 10 seconds at intervals of about 45 minutes. It shows the main dust jet and 'hood' generation rather well.
