I received the Lexington tower lightning negative scans back from the pro lab here in town, and here are the results:

These were shot on Kodak 200 speed print film on a Pentax K1000 SLR, at F8 with a 28mm wide-angle lens. Exposure times ranged from 45 to 120 seconds.

To prove the number of hits to the towers, here are the two strikes caught on video that occured before I got the 35mm camera set up. The eleventh strike happened before I got the first video camera up, and unfortunately was not captured.
