Several series of ccd-images of the core region of comet Hale-Bopp were made at the prime focus of my Celestron C11. The one used, consists of 11 single exposures I took around 19:26 UT. Exp. time was one second, one pixel covers 1.2 arcseconds, north is at the top, east to the right. Both images shown, were median combined from single exposures where each was dark processed, flat fielded and registered. Some further processing brings out structure.
