Nice to see you guys joining in.
First time I have spotted Linear T7, and in the twilight morning sky.
D100 Nikon, at ISO1000, 105 seconds, 300mm Nikkor lens.
Hamilton, New Zealand. 17th May, 2004, 1758UT. ()557 local time). Then after rising early I found I was able to see it in the evening sky as well, but the elements were against me getting any successful shots. Maybe tomorrow.
Regards,
Gary

Charles,
I have produced (from 12 images taken last night) an animation of the comet's movement. It is about 600kbs, and I can't get it any smaller. In a week or so I will have the webpage updated and it will be there, but until then I am stuck with this sized file. Any way I can post it here?
Gary.

I guess you could post it if you made it into an animated Gif File. If that does not work post a link to the file in here so we can see. I can't wait to see it.

Hi Charles,
it is an animated gif file, but still a biggie.
I will give it a crack, and if that doesn't work I will post a link, once the link is actually done. Nothing spectacular, but nice just the same. Most of the credit goes to the 19 year old slave who turned the 12 tiffs into an animation.
