1. I took this image while out at Joshua Tree National monument on March 29th, 1997. It was taken with a Minolta X700 on tripod using Fuji 400G color print film. Exposure was taken at about 2015 on the date above. Exposure time was 1 minute 10 seconds.

2. This one was taken through a Orion Short Yube Rich Field Refractor piggy backed on my Meade 2120 LX-5. Exposure time for this shot was 3 minutes. The original has way more details in the tail showing both tails. Camera used was a Minolta X700, Film was Fuji 400G Color Print film!
