The current comets + inclement weather really have been a wash-out for me as "binocular" /"monocular"observer. However, although not by any means a real "astro-photographer", I do have a considerable number of snaps-shots of astro-subjects taken from 1960s to the present day. Mounted in 9 volumes of display books, I have spent sometime recently looking through these, labelling the pages, and indexing them. One of the most intereresting subjects was the number of photographs of Comet Hale-Bopp, plus the fact that I still have, filed in the back, the strips of photographic negatives of this wonderful apparition. These are dated 9th, 10th,11th, and 15th April, 1997...next month will therefore be the 20th Anniverary of the best time for viewing this great comet. Memories indeed! regards maf
