available on the ING Hale-Bopp page at
This picture is the sum of eight 120s
and one 180s exposure through a narrow band filter centered at 618.5
It was taken from 5:27 to 5:43 UT and from 6:20 to 6:34 UT on March 14.
The field size is 8.6×10.4 degrees. The picture hasn't been
flatfielded. The longer tail is ionic while the shorter one is
dusty. Stars are double because the CCD was exposured during two diferent time
intervals and the comet has a proper motion. Colours are artificial.
