Astrophoto Friday: Comet Kohoutek

Here is a vintage picture of Comet Kohoutek.

The comet was photographed with Palomar Observatory's 48-inch Schmidt telescope (now called the Samuel Oschin Telescope) on January 12, 1974. The image was captured using a 103a-O blue light sensitive photographic plate with a three minute exposure.
