Roberts Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Joe Roberts
Location: Salem, Connecticut
Date: April 4, 1997

Here is what I consider my best shot of Hale Bopp. It was taken with a Vivitar 500mm F6.3 lens on Kodak Royal Gold 400 film. Five minute exposure from Salem, CT USA (which is an acceptable but not great site) on 4 April 97. Luckily the longer focal length lens seemed to "cut through" the relatively severe light pollution in the direction I was shooting. Guiding piggyback on Celestron CG-11.
