This image of Hale-Bopp was taken at Joshua Tree National Monument, at the Jumbo Rocks campsite with a Pentax 6x7 90mm f/2.8. It is a 60 sec exposure where the moon was used to highlight the landscape. By the way, there is a plane trail at the upper right of this image though it may be difficult for you to see it in this scan. I have 7 such pictures, not one of them was free of plane trails.
