 Comet Hyakutake

comet Hyakutake

© Philipp Salzgeber

Film: Kodak Technical Pan
Telescope/Lens: Nikon 300mm f/2,8
Exposure: 15 min at f/2,8.
Date: 24 March 1996

Comments: I developed the Film in a print developer, which resulted in very hight contrast. The hight contrast is good for the comet, but it enhances the vignetting very much. I used my Super Polaris mount, without guiding corrections. Because of that, the stars are point-like, but the comet (which moved during the exposure) shows no detail.
