Comet Hale-Bopp 1995O1 exposed 120 seconds using a custom-made CCD camera in conjunction with a 16cm f3.3 Takahashi reflector. The following processing has been applied: Dark frame correction, NO flat fielded and histogram equalisation. Note the faint broad dust tail extending outside the field of view (F.O.V. 0.75 x 0.50 degrees).

First image is a false color image of Comet Hale-Bopp. The exposure was 20 minutes with my 180mm Astro-Physics refractor and ST-8 ccd camera. A focal reducer was used giving an effective focal ratio of f/6. The image was cropped to about 20 arc minutes across. North is up.
