Hanon Images of Comet 1996 B2 Hyakutake



Observer: David Hanon
Location: Ringgold, Georgia
Date: March 25, 1996 01:41 UT, 00:45 UT

A wide angle image with a 5 deg x 3.3 deg field of view. It was a 5 minute exposure with 180mm f/2.5 lens and ST-8 ccd camera. The image was taken at 01:41 UT on 03/25/96. A high resolution false color image of the nucleous was taken with a 7" f/9 refractor. The exposure was 15 sec with ST-8 ccd camera. The time of exposure was 00:45 UT on 03/25/96. The resolution is 1.1 arc sec /pixel. A bar structure can be seen in the center and was visible on several other exposures.

It looks like weather is going to get me for the next few days so this wil probably be the las images until then. I feel fortunate to have had as many good nights as I have had considering our usual weather this time of year.
