Frost Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Mack Frost
Location: Cody, Wyoming
Date: April 2, 1997 04:30 UT

This image was taken the night of April 2nd at about 9:30pmMST, some six miles south of Cody, Wyoming. The exposure was for 11-minutes on Fuji 800 Super G+ using a 70-210mm/f3.5 lens set at 210mm wide open, and guided by means of piggybacking on a Meade 2080 LX10. The image was scanned off a matte print and manipulated to enhance the blue gas-plasma tail, and slightly increase the contrast.
