North Coast Night Sky

The city lights are far away, and when the sea is calm and there is no fog, it can be very clear. This is the fisheye lens once again...you can see a slightly bent roofline towards the top of the photo. This was an 8 minute exposure with 100 speed film. There is a high resolution version of this image available (88k).

This is the Hyakutake comet. I used a 90mm lens for this picture; that means that it's a pretty large object in the sky. The comet certainly did look different through the binoculars; you could see a faint core where the photo shows an overexposed blob. The greenish color is only apparent on film.
