Papenburg Image of Comet 1996 B2 Hyakutake


Observer: Ellen Papenburg

A camera on a tripod and a transparent sky can just do it! I took a series of photos of Hyakutake 1996/B2 from March 26-28. This is surprisingly one of the best of that bunch. Even better than an evening later guided with a telescope for 10 minutes!

Camera OM2 f/1.8-50mm, 30 seconds on 1600 ASA Fuji Super HG color film. 27-03-96 4h14m UT. or 26th of March 23h14 EST Ontario, Canada, amidst terrible streetlights in my backyard. It was bitterly cold, but therefore the sky was crispy clear! Photo: Ellen Papenburg.
