1. Pentax K-1000, f/2, 50-mm. Fuji 800, 15 seconds unguided. Digitized from negative using Snappy 3.0 and 8-mm camcorder after over a week of South Texas cloudy spring weather.

2. Pentax K-1000, f/2, 50-mm afocal into 40-mm eyepiece on Criterion RV-6 (6", f/8 Newtonian). Fuji 800, 5 seconds clockdriven ("hat trick") north at top, west at right. Digitized from negative using Snappy 3.0 and 8-mm camcorder. Found out that the Criterion clock drive still worked well after years of not using it!

3. Pentax K-1000, f/2, 50-mm. Fuji 800, 20 seconds unguided. Digitized from negative using Snappy 3.0 and 8-mm camcorder. Lots of tree illumination from the mercury vapor street and residential security lights!
