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.
