Porto Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Joao Porto
Location: Azores Islands
Date: April 7, 1997 23:00 UT

Here is another image that valorizes the HB false nucleous showing what I believe must be the main fountain and some lateral jets. The image treatment was done very carefully to avoid some effects due to noise and the creation of a artificial image.

ETX 90mm f/13.8, 2500ms CWIP-S CCD.
