1. Pentax K-1000, projection from 18-mm eyepiece on Criterion RV-6 (6", f/8 Newtonian). Fuji 800, 5 seconds clockdriven ("hat trick"). West at top, south at right. Digitized from negative using Snappy 3.0 and 8-mm camcorder. Another week-plus hiatus due to the poor South Texas spring weather. A slight "hint" of the multiple "shells", likely overexposed.

2. Pentax K-1000, f/2, 50-mm with 2x teleconverter. Kodak 400, 30 seconds piggyback on clockdriven Criterion RV-6. Digitized from negative using Snappy 3.0 and 8-mm camcorder
