Well I might as well throw my image of Hale Bopp into the mix. I believe this was my second attempt at AP on my own. I have temporarily misplaced the exposure data for this (somewhere on my old computer) but I know it was 35mm Kodak Gold 200 and I think the exposure was around 5-10 min. manually guided with the camera strapped onto my scope with a hose clamp.

In the end, this ran in over 300 newspapers and magazines worldwide, was made into a poster and continues to sell today as a fine art print. I have a nice 16x22 of it on my wall.
