Comet Hyakutake

An image from a series of slides taken of Comet Hyakutake back in 1996.


Although I took copious notes when I took these images I'm currently unable to find them so the details of type of film and the exposure time aren't available right now (I am going to keep looking for the notebook). What I do know is that they were taken from a site in Hampshire, around the time of the comet's closest approach to the Earth, using a Zenith 35mm SLR. This image would either have been taken with a 52mm or 28mm lens.
