Garradd Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Gordon Garradd
Location: Loomberah, Australia
Date: December 22, 1997

Comet Hale-Bopp, 1997 Dec 22. The sum of a 30 sec and a 60 sec exposure processed to show the faint tail which extends well off the frame in both directions, the lower extension being the anti-tail, now seen as we approach the orbital plane of the comet. A false-colour palette has been applied. Field size is 22' X 15' and North is up. Taken with a 25cm Newtonian and HI-SIS 22 CCD from Loomberah NSW Australia.
