C/1995 O1 (HALE-BOPP)



FÖRSTA OBSERVATIONEN FRÅN SVENSK MARK!
Den 16 maj 1996 observerades Hale-Bopp med stor svårighet av Lars Hermansson och Johan Warell med Uppsala AmatörAstronomers 0.45-m Newton. Med x62 och Lumicon DSF sågs en svag fläck med en diameter av 3-5 bågminuter, rund och detaljlös. Kontrasten var mycket låg och objektet betraktades som svårare än Hästhuvudnebulosan under bra himmel. Gränsmagnituden på 3 graders altitud mot den ljusa himlen var ca 9 i teleskopet. Med högre förstoring var det inte möjligt att se kometen.

Observatörer i de sydliga delarna av Sverige har sannolikt betydligt bättre möjlighet att se Hale-Bopp tack vare mörkare himmel och högre altitud.



VÄLKOMMEN ATT LÄMNA OBSERVATIONER, BILDER MM

Observationer på ICQ-FORMAT skickas till Grzegorz på e-mailadress: dusgrz@saaf.se eller Grzegorz Duszanowics, Snapphanevägen 142, 175 34 Järfälla (tel: 08-58025243). Observationer som du vill ha postade på DENNA SIDA skickar du även till Johan Warell (Johan.Warell@astro.uu.se), likaledes på ICQ-format. Skicka gärna även bilder (helst gif- eller jpegformat) med fullständiga data om instrument, film, tidpunkt, obsplats. Tänk på att diskutrymmet inte är obegränsat - ju mindre filer desto större chans att de länkas oredigerade till sidan!


SAMARBETE MED POLACKERNA

SAAF:s Solsystemsektion samarbetar med de polska amatörernas kometsektion, och vi får hjälp med bearbetningen av rådata från observationerna. Successivt kommer sammanställningar med polska och svenska observationer att sändas över till USA för att ingå i ICQ:s arkiv. Den som vill publicera sitt kometmaterial snabbt i Sverige rekommenderas att e-maila SAAF:s Astrobas möte j13.

Orbit and Ephemeris Information for C/1995 O1 (Hale-Bopp)

Don Yeomans - JPL March 4, 1997 Additional observations through March 3, 1997 have been used to update the orbit, ephemeris, and error analysis.
