Observer: James Foster
Location: Red Rock State Park, California
Date: March 30, 1997
135mm lens at f/2.5 for 2 minutes. This shot was taken on unhypered Fuji 1600. It is looking north-west towards the direction of Bakersfield, Ca. The foreground silohette is the C-11 with a Genesis 4" refractor on top with a 135mm on top of that. The large red circle is from my telerad. Note how the comet's color contrasts with the spectrally pure red light emitting diode of the telerad.
