Here is another shot of Ikeya Zhang as of 5/3/02. The tail is much dimmer and thinner than my other pics that were taken a month or so ago.

30 minutes thru a ST80 F5 refractor on Fuji NPH400 film. It was guided on a nearby star rather than the comet itself, thus there is slight elongation in the same axis as the tail which makes it harder to detect.
