Hutchinson Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Bill Hutchinson
Location: Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska
Date: March 28, 1997 11:00 UT

2 AM local time March 28th. My attempts to capture the Andromeda Galaxy in one of my comet photos has again been nixed by weather. Our clouds here at 60 degrees north are waiting for the moonrise before lifting. I've put a small arrow here to mark our neighboring galaxy. Nikon N90 50mm at f2.0, 1 minute exposure on Fuji 400HG, guided by haig mount.
