Observer: Bill Hood
Date: April 4, 1997
The first image was taken on 4 April with an 80-200mm lens at f/5.6 for 15 min. on hypered Fuji 400 film.
The second image is one of my favorite comet shots. It took me all day to figure out how I was going to get the scope to be in focus while maintaining the infinity setting for the stars. Background exposure was 30 secs. at f/2.8, then I covered the lens and stopped down to f/16 and fired a flash set at f/16. Taken with a Mamiya 645 and a 45mm lens on Fuji 400 film.
