Comet HALE-BOPP

Here is a selection of my better photos of Hale Bopp. These images have not been "computer processed", rather they look very much like the actual prints.








April 1, 1997
Long Sault Conservation Area (approx. 1 hr. north-east of Toronto)
160 mm, f3.5, 10 min, Royal Gold 1000
This is the same photo that appeared in the June 1997 issue of the Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada.









March 12, 1997
Bruce's Mills Conservation Area
(just north of Metro Toronto)
70 mm, f3.5, 45 sec., ISO 400


 

 


 

March 31, 1997
Warden & Sheppard area (Scarborough)
160 mm, f3.5, 10 sec. ISO 400

Note the brightness of the comet with only a 10 sec. exposure
from a heavily light polluted area!

The "writing" was done by shining a red flashlight during the exposure,
and spelling HALE BOPP "in the air"... too bad I ran off the frame!
