1. This is an 8-minute exposure on Kodak PPF 400 using a 70-210mm zoom lens wide open at f/4 (surprisingly not too bad!).

2. This 15mm fisheye photo from March 28 features the Zodiacal Light, the comet, and the photographer. Sirius is on the left edge, while Cassiopeia shows up on the right side of the frame. It's a 4-minute exposure on PPF 400 at f/2.8.
