The first image is taken with a Pentax 1:1.4 50mm on Kodak Tri-X-Pan with 25 sec exposure time. The 2nd image is taken with a Pentax 1:2.5 200mm on Kodak Tri-X-Pan and 15 sec exp. time. These are the best images I ever made from Hale-Bopp. Fine details in the Iontail are clearly visible. 2nd image shows Hale-Bopp above Andromeda Galaxy. The visual magnitude on this very clear evening was ~ -0.2 m.
