Deschenes Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Philippe Deschenes
Location: Rawdon, Quebec, Canada
Date: April 4, 1997 02:00 UT

Equipment: Nikkormat + 50 mm F/2. Exposure: App. 1 min.

While exposing on top of a hill, a policeman's car accidently light the background of the photo, making visible all the trees in the back. I tought the picture would be ruined ! Fortunately, the results were great. It also turned out that one of the 2 policemen were an amateur astronomer.
