Kodak Gold 100 Test: Messier 8 Region

In August I exposed some Kodak Gold 100 to see how it would record nebulae.

This image was acquired via a Pentax Spotmatic with a vintage 300mm f/4 SMC Takumar wide open with 30 minutes exposure.

While the film did record the red and blue components of the Trifid nebulae, it does not seem to do as well as Fujicolor 100 which I tested earlier this summer.

Kodak Gold 100 still paints a nice picture, whether it be daylight or nightime. Too bad this film is difficult to obtain and perhaps is being discontinued.
