This is an eyepiece projection photograph of a jet extending from the coma of Comet Hyakutake which I took on the night of 1996/3/23 with a Pentax K1000 SLR camera and a 17" f/15 classical Cassegrain.  The location was the Astronomical Society of Harrisburg's Naylor Observatory, which is located two miles northwest of Lewsiberry, Pennsylvania.
