Three images of Hyakutake taken on March 24, 1996 at about 1-3 UTC from the Charlotte, NC area. All these were taken by hand guiding on on the comet nucleus - hence the "streaked" stars. The film was Fuji ASA 400 color print film processed normally.
1st image: 50mm f1.4 lens wide open, 1 minute.
2nd image: 135mm f1.8 lens at f2.8, about 5 minutes.
3rd image: 300mm f4 lens wide open, 5 minutes.
The images were scanned at 1024 pixels/inch on a MicroTek 35mm scanner and saved in fairly compressed JPEG format.
