Imaging Camera:
Celestron C5+ SCT (1250 mm FL, f/10)

Olympus OM-4T (35 mm SLR)

Exposure Details:
Boot's Camera handled developing and scanning the negatives. The rest of the exposure data is missing, but this is likely what I did: [1] Film was probably Kodak Royal Gold 100. [2] Exposure was probably determined by spot metering and exposure compensation. [3] Shutter speed was probably around 1/15.
