April 1997

Taken through EasyGuider as it's an extended object. Photoshop for cropping and enlarging.

Exposure time automatic, approx. a half second.


April 1996

Taken as above, except for using black and white film.



Light Pollution

Wide angle shot. It is just possible to make out the long tail of the comet passing through the light pollution coming up from the bottom centre of the photo.

The light pollution shows up much worse in the original, covering virtually the entire photo. Most of it removed in Photoshop.
