Bergeron Images of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Denis Bergeron
Location: Quebec, Canada
Date: March 24, 1997 23:33 UT

Image of nuclei of Hale-Bopp comet taken on March 24, 1997 at 23h33 UT by Denis Bergeron (Quebec, Canada) with a Meade SCT 10" F10 (FL:2500mm). I used a CCD camera SBIG ST6 and a number of 9 images exposed 1 sec were taken. All the 9 images were added and processed by unsharp masking and other processing technics. The blue color of the comet were added to increase the look and are not the real color of Hale-Bopp. The image is very similar as we can see now when you observe Hale-Bopp with a telescope at high magnification.
