I finally developed some film shots of Comet Neowise. The pictures are from 3 different nights. The third pic was from a darker site with SQM around 21.4

 

All shots taken with a Canon AE1 program. 50mm lens. Tracked unguided. Average exposure of around 8 minutes at F 2.8.

Thank you all for looking!  It was really fun shooting Neowise with both film and digital. But there was something truly magical capturing it with the old Canon AE1. 

 

I processed the first two image scans on my laptop which unfortunately isn't calibrated. I ended up overcooking the colors, including the red in the comet. I just checked the slides on the light table to make sure those odd colors weren't part of the original images. I may redo them later. The last two images were done on a better monitor. Neowise was fun while it lasted!
