I was in high school and built a piggy back mount to fit it on my 4.5" Tasco reflector, that I used as a manually driven guide scope, using a homemade reticule eyepiece made by taping two of my hairs at the bottom of the barrel and centering them on a OOF "bright" star somewhere in the cameras field of few.
10 min exposure, f3.5, 51mm, all manually driven. TRI-X pan, developed and printed in my darkroom under the basement stairs.
This is a scan from the album of prints that I still have with me.
The Comet is in Cassiopeia, nearing it's lower culmination, and the blob next to it, is the city water tower that was next to our yard.

After much calibrating, running PEC curves, more calibrating, aligning and finally waiting for weather to clear, I finally have a 'real' image out of my scope. Only have learned as far as CCD stack, so this was solely processed in that. Learning photoshop now to do some more processing.
