Comet Hale-Bopp

Comet Hale-Bopp - 1997

A friend asked me if I took photos of the SuperMoon/Lunar eclipse on Sunday (9-27-15). I had to tell her that I didn’t. I have been CURSED for years! Whenever there is an astronomical event on a specific day, it has “almost” always been OVERCAST. And, on Sunday, it was TOTALLY overcast again. The last time I took a lunar eclipse photo, and I’m not exaggerating, was in 1989.
In 1997 I was able to take photos of Comet Halle-Bopp because comets don’t come and go in 1 night. I had my Olympus OM-1 camera loaded with B&W film connected to my telescope. I took a series of shots, and not being sure of the exposure, timed them from 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Also timing those exposures was done the old-fashioned way because I didn’t have a watch with a second hand. I had to count ¬†– 1 mississippi, 2 mississippi, etc. The film was developed and the photo printed in my darkroom.
