This is a 20 minute exposure centered on 02:12 UT Nov. 7, 2007 with a homemade camera featuring a Mamiya 120 film back and an 85mm Nikkor lens @ f/5.6 on the new Fujichrome Provia 400X pushed to ISO 1600.
This new film performs quite well - it picked up the blue ion tail of 17P/Holmes and the red of the California Nebula (NGC 1499). Several stars and other deep sky objects are noted.
