Hanon Images of Comet 1996 B2 Hyakutake



Observer: David Hanon
Location: Ringgold, Georgia
Date: March 18, 1996 04:25 UT, 03:00 UT

First image is (3) 5 minute exposures averaged. They were taken with a 300mm f/2.8 lens and ST-8 ccd camera. The mean time of the exposures was 04:25 UT. I was seriously hampered by clouds tonight. The second image is a single 10 second exposure showing the comet rising above tree tops on a distant hill. The time of the exposure was 03:00 UT. Same equipment as the first image.
