The first image is taken with a Pentax 1:1.4 50mm on Kodak Tri-X-Pan with 25 sec exposure time.
The 2nd images is taken with a Pentax 1:2.5 200mm on Kodak Tri-X-Pan and 10 sec exp. time.
In this morning the conditions were good (new moon, less haze). The Ion-tail seemed to be fainter than one week ago, but you can clearly see its double structure on the 2nd image.
The visual magnitude of Hale-Bopp in this morning was about ~ 0.6 m
