Reneau Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Leon Reneau
Location: Milpitas, California
Date: April 4, 1997 02:30 UT

Hale-Bopp photo by Leon Reneau. Taken on 4/4/97 at 0230 zulu from Milpitas, CA. near San Francisco. 3 min. guided exposure on unhypered Fuji super G 800 with 90mm f/2.8 lens. First attempt at guided astrophotography. Used manual barn door tracker with 8X50 guide scope. Bay area light pollution and air traffic make conditions less than desirable (note aircraft passing through lower left corner).
