First image is interesting, not for the over exposed tree in the foreground, but for the traveling blip passing under the comet. It's a plane on approach to RDU airport in Raleigh, NC. Ektachrome 200, 60 seconds, Konica 70-150 f4.
Second image is the best shot I have made to date. Ektachrome 200, 30 seconds, Konica 40 f1.8.
Both slides were digitized using a Snappy, Canon ES2000 hi8 camcorder, and a homemade light box. Both shots were taken at about 8 pm on 3/29/97.
