Comet Ikeya Seki (1965f) (35kB JPG of Photoshop composite)
I took this picture when I was 15. It is still probably the most
spectacular sight I've ever seen. The
Photoshop composite is a reduced grain, colorized combination
of two (15 and 20 second) exposures on
Tri-X with a 50mm lens at f/2.8.
The date was Oct 30th, 1965, 5:15 AM EST.
I was really lucky to have seen a comet of this beauty.
I have a large, high resolution version of this photograph. Contact me if you
Solar eclipse in Montana, Feb 26, 1979 (Color)(72k)
This shot was taken at the prime focus of my 6 inch f/4.6 RFT.
I was in Lewistown, Montana. Eclipses are impossible to describe if
you've never seen one. They are really fun! (But they sure can give you
grey hairs sweating out the weather!)

Halley's Comet (Color)(119k)
I have a T-shirt I made that says "I saw Halley's Comet... I Think!
". The comet is just above center in the picture. Trust me. 8^)
