First Gathering of Iranian Amateur Astronomy Groups
(Esfahan, July 2000)

Sur cette page figurent quelques unes des plus belles photos réalisées à l'occasion de la rencontre des astronomes amateurs iraniens à Ispahan en juillet 2000, manifestation ŗ laquelle nous avons eu l'immense honneur de participer ! Cette rencontre ťtait organisée autour du thème des comètes, et l'invité principal était Alan Hale, le célèbre découvreur de la magnifique Hale-Bopp... Le compte-rendu détaillé de cette aventure se trouve dans le numéro d'octobre 2000 de Galactée.

On this page, you will find some of the most beautiful pictures we made during the gathering. A full article is devoted to this gathering in the October 2000 issue of our magazine. Don't hesitate to comment those pictures...
