Stansel Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Karen Stansel
Location: Mesquite, Texas
Date: March 29, 1997 01:45 UT

We haven't had many good evenings to view the comet due to our unfavorable weather. The photo was taken from my front yard and, although my camera was previously loaded with slow film, I decided to capture the moment anyway.

Equipment: Canon AE-1 Program with 50mm Canon lens set at f1.8, tripod mounted with cable release. Fuji Reala (ASA100) film exposed for 2 seconds.
