Description

Version A: Image was taken 1997 on Kodak Ektachrome 400 ASA, clouds were approaching.
Scanned from a printed image, original slide got lost :(

Version B: Leitz Summicron 50 mm f/2 - 31.03.1997 - 22.07 CEST, Kodak Ektachrome 400 ISO slide film, exposure time 2,5 min.
One of my few slides of Hale Bopp recently appeared by coincidence, all important dates were written on the frame. Image was taken on a Vixen New Polaris mount. Scanned to digital format, not sure about loss of image quality after all the years.
