Image taken 23rd March 1996.  Time is not recorded but likely between 8pm and 9pm local time, namely 10hrs to 11hrs UT.  Colour print film, likely Kodak 100 ISO.  (It was not a 'serious image' so precise details not recorded.) The movement of the comet would have been 'tracked' by focussing upon the head.
