Comet LINEAR S4
Comet LINEAR S4 shot with the C-8 at prime focus on Fuji Superia 800. The exposure time was 1 min. I would have liked a longer exposure, but I was guiding off a star, and on the longer exposures the comet moves across the frame. If I could have used my guide scope, I could have tracked on the comet and got a good long shot.

The Moon was just a few days old, the rest was "Earth Shine" The clouds started coming in late, but I think this shot looks pretty cool. It was shot with my Minolta and a 135mm Vivatar lens. The exposure was 1 sec on Kodak Royal Gold 1000.
