Pandolfo Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: M. Pandolfo
Location: Spencer, Massachussets
Date: March 25, 1997 01:30 UT

Image taken with a Pentax K1000 camera with a 210mm lens at f-4. The camera was tripod mounted, and stationary (unguided). I used this rather uncommonly chosen speed as part of an experiment to see if I could bring out more detail than normally obtained with the more commonly chosen 400 speed film.

03/24/97, 20:30 est. exposure time: 24 seconds. a 500x350 image reduced from an original 2000x1400 image; fairly lossy, but only 31K to download
