First image is a 4 second exposure at 10:29 UT on 25 February 1997. The comet was photographed on un-hypersensitized Fujicolor Super G 800 Plus with an Astro-Physics 130 EDT f/8 refractor working at f/6 from the front lawn of my house in Voorhees, NJ, which is a suburb of Philadelphia. This is through quite a bit of light pollution from the city and suburbs, and the gibbous moon was also in the sky.

Second image is a 30 second exposure at 10:25 UT on 25 February 1997.
