Both images were taken with a Nikon F3 using a 105mm f 2.5 Nikkor lens. They were taken at the same location. Images taken on Fuji ISO 1600 print film. They were printed commercially and scanned into a Mac on a Flatbed UMAX scanner and enhanced a bit with Photoshop. The two vertical images were taken on April 15, 1997 at 8:45 EDT, one at 15 seconds exposure and one at 25 seconds exposure. The longer exposure shows star trails. This was one day after first quarter moon.
