comet McNaught

I saw the comet tonight, after the smoke haze and clouds cleared. I raced up to Mugga Hill just outside town and took photos (30sec, Fuji ASA400 film @ f5.6, 2 photos at 28mm, 2 at 90mm) I had to turn autofocus off so I hope my poor eyes got the manual focus right.

Mugga hill is outside the lights of town so the ky is quite dark. The comet is awsome. The tail easily crosses 10% of the sky, and looks like a celestial feather quill pen.
