Jeff,

An excellent observation of Halley's Comet (1P/Halley). You have recorded the nucleus, coma, and dust/ion tails very nicely. I was also able to observe Halley's comet with my 12.5" F/6.2 Newtonian. I have darkened the background and cleaned the stars a little. I hope that you like it. Thank you for sharing this memory with us all.

Carlos

Jeff,

Brings back fun memories of observing this comet under ideal conditions just a few months later.

Frank

Yeah, we were supposed to view it from the SST but I had to work and missed the trip. Can't remember how many of us observed it but we found a very dark and secluded spot down in the Keys to photograph and draw it for weeks. When will it return? 2060? I am 70 now so maybe my grandkids will see it.
