1. Pentax K-1000, f/2, projection from 40-mm eyepiece on Criterion RV-6 (6", f/8 Newtonian). Kodacolor 400, 6 seconds clockdriven ("hat trick"), west at top, south at right. Digitized from negative using Snappy 3.0 and 8-mm camcorder

2. Pentax K-1000, f/2, 50-mm with 2x teleconverter. Fuji 800, 30 seconds piggyback on clockdriven Criterion RV-6. Digitized from negative using Snappy 3.0 and 8-mm camcorder The later twilight and lower comet elevation all combined with the local light pollution to quickly reduce the contrast in these images.
