Oeting Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Mark Oetting
Location: Colorado
Date: March 26, 1997

One of my favorite images I took with a Minolta x-700 camera with a 50 mm. lens on March 26, 1997. I "painted" the railroad tressel built in 1935 with two flashlights and a quick flash from the car headlights that was backed into the ditch. Exposure time is about 50 seconds @ f 1.7 with Kodak 400 Gold film. From the "Black Hole" in North Centralish Colorado
