SUMMARY: Larry took this close picture of comet Hale-Bopp from Germantown Hills, Illinois. This image was taken with a Nikon 35mm camera and a 200mm lense riding piggyback on the guided telescope.

Do you have photos you'd like to share? Post them to the Universe Today astrophotography forum or email them to me directly, and I might feature one in Universe Today.

Nice one, Larry! :D
Clear enough to see both &#39;tails&#39;... of course, I forget what is &#39;driving&#39; the blue one >rotten memory&#33; :angry: < ... and the backdrop of stars looks like it might have a couple of stories to tell, too&#33;
All in all, beautiful&#33; ... what else can I say but I&#39;m jealous&#33; :D

Brings back a few very happy memories of many hours spent observing that magnificent comet. I wonder if we&#39;ll ever be lucky enough to see such a brilliant comet again...
