Pine Image of Comet Shoemaker-Levy


Pine Creek Observatory

This is the processed image where a portion of the 2048x2048 CCD image has been cutout and contrast enhanced. The diffuse nature of the comet is now a hindrance to its detectablity against the scattered light from Jupiter. The red arrow p oints to the most luminous fragment and the train extends from the lower right to the top left of the blue box, but it is rather hard to see.
