This image is a single two second exposure of the center of the comet. A Meade Pictor 416 was attached to a Meade LX200 8" F/6.3. The image was taken at 00:20UT on Mar 25, 1997. The image was corrected with a dark frame and a flat field. The image was unsharp masked and logarithmically stretched. Two jets on the nucleus can be seen and five to seven rings of material (depending on presentation software and hardware).
