Holter Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Spencer Holter
Location: Rochester, Minnesota
Date: April 16, 1997 02:30 UT

This is the first time I have tried to take a picture of a comet, so it's not a particularly sophisticated image. I took it in my back yard with my Minolta camera, mounted on a tripod, 50mm lens at f2, Kodacolor Gold 400, about 10 seconds exposure. I am in Rochester, MN.
