Photo samples: C/1988 A1 (Liller)


      Comet Liller was a nice comet that remained visible for several months. I obtained fairly regular photographs from April through June.


This image is a digital combination of two images I obtained on 1988 June 4.14 and June 5.13 UT. I used Konica 3200 and a 205mm lens set to f/5.6. The exposure each night was about 6.5 minutes and the camera was mounted piggyback to the 6-inch reflector and was tracked with the stars.
