Hanon Image of Comet 1996 B2 Hyakutake


Observer: David Hanon
Location: Ringgold, Georgia
Date: March 9, 1996 08:24 UT

False color image of B2 Hyakutake. It was taken on my 180mm refractor at f/9 with an ST-8 ccd camera. The image is the result of (20) 30 second images with a mean exposure time of 08:24 UT, 3/9/1996. The comet is obviously much brighter but the image quality suffers from the proximity of the moon.
