Dierick Image of Comet 1996 B2 Hyakutake


Observer: Dominique Dierick
Location: France
Date: March 26, 1996 02:00 UT

I took this image from excellent skies in France ( we drove 650 kms from Belgium to see the comet) with a 50 mm lens and Fujicolor SG800. The image was scanned with an HP Scanjet and processed using Photoshop. It shows the tail brilliantly, as well as the streamers.

Date March 26, about 2h UT, 5 minutes at f 2. Guided on the stars with SBIG-4
