# ST1 : This photo
was taken out in Valley Center, California on the morning
of 03/08/97 (when I should have shooting Hale-Bopp). It is
taken on Kodak RG 1000 film and the exposure was 5 minutes.
I used a 45mm lens with f/2.2.
# ST2 : This picture
was a pure pleasure to get back from the developing lab. The
unusual coloration of the bush in the foreground was due to
a truck's brake lights during this 10 minute exposure. It
was accidental and I was really upset, but I quickly learned
that it made it really neat to look at. This was taken the
night of 03/09/97 out in Anza-Borrego during an OPTAS star
party. I used Fuji SG 800 (hence the yellower background)
with a 45mm lens at f/2.2.
# ST3 : This picture
is around Polaris and it's about a 10 minute exposure. It
was taken in the Anza-Borrego State Park on the night of 03/09/97,
during the OPTAS star party. I used Fuji SG 800 film, a 45mm
lens, and f/2.2.
