First photo taken on Technical Pan 2415 with an 8" f/1.5 Schmidt-Camera using a Wratten 25A filter. Exposure was ten minutes. It was taken on April 14, 1996 at 04:10 UT from the mountains over Malibu in California. Second photo was taken with an Olumpus OM-1 camera with a 50mm f/1.8 Zuiko lens at f/1.8 for ten minutes with a deep sky filter. The Olympus camera was piggybacked on the Schmidt-Camera and both photos were taken simultaneously. More of the tail seems to be visible in the Olympus shot.
