Meehan Image of Comet 1996 B2 Hyakutake


Observer: Gary Meehan
Location: Green Mountains of Effingham, New Hampshire
Date: March 27, 1996 07:00 UT

This image was taken on the morning of 27 March at about 2 a.m., local time from the Green Mountains of Effingham, N.H.

I used the piggyback technique. My first attempt ever. I used a Canon Ftb equipped with a 135mm f/2.4 lens, which included a Lumicon Minus Violet filter. The 15 minute exposure was made using Fuji Super HG 1600 print film. The telescope to which the camera was mounted was guided entirely by hand.
