Isaac Newton Group of Telescopes Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: The Isaac Newton Group of Telescopes
Location: Roque de Los Muchachos Observatory, La Palma, Spain
Date: March 25, 1997 05:48-06:05 UT

This picture is the sum of six 30s exposures without filters. It's 4.2×5.2 degrees and it was taken from 5:48 to 6:05 UT. The tail shows an obvious arc-shape. Finally the prominence on the head is due to saturation.
