Date/Time of photo:
March 6, 1997
This is a digital stack of one 10 and one 7 minute exposure with a 50mm Nikkor lens @ f/2.8 on Kodak PPF 400. S&T's Sean Walker combined the two images for this result - MUCH better in every way than either single image.
Here is the Great Comet of 1997 still approaching both earth and sun below a backdrop of the Cygnus star cloud highlighted by regions of glowing hydrogen.
