Richolson Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Ron Richolson
Location: Salina, Kansas
Date: April 1, 1997 03:15 UT

This photo was taken on April 1 at 03:15 UT. This photo was taken using a Minolta SRT101 with a 90-230 mm lens using Kodak PJM film. It was set at 230 mm at f4.5 for 10 minutes. I was at a fairly dark site about 10 miles west of Salina, KS. I had the camera piggybacked on a friend's 8" Celestron that was automatically tracking. I had to do some fine adjustments while it was tracking.
