Arpin Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Pierre Arpin
Location: Longueuil, Canada
Date: March 23, 1997

Without any doubt, this is the worst picture of that comet you have received so far. Not having the chance to go outside because I have no car I must satisfy myself with light pollution. I live in Longueuil, a suburb of Montreal and my home is less than 10km from downtown Montreal. The picture have been taken on march 23th soon after the partial eclipse of the moon ended.

Taken with a Minolta 35 mm with a 50 mm objective and a 30 sec exposure with a Fuji ISO 100.
