I love this picture! Beautiful work!
Awesome! Did you use a panning head on a tripod?
I’m not sure what a panning head is sorry… I had the camera on a tripod, fixed and exposed for about 2 mins. This was taken on 35mm film, 1600ASA to bring out the comet tail. The streaks on the right are clouds moving and the comet tail curls up and ‘joins’ with the cloud. Pitty the power lines were in the way! I couldn’t see them though when I took the shot because it was so dark! and the kangaroos in the passock scared the hell out of me too when I heard them!
Wow, fantastic capture!
