Hi Martin,

this is a great shot showing an unbelievable atmosphere of the nightsky! Congratulation!

My GXR + A16 is on the way from Germany, hope to receive it on Monday. I shall also be a newcomer to the GXR. So far I've been using Panasonic Lumix G1 and G3, Fuji X100 and Fuji X-S1 (a huge bridge camera with lots of facilities but poor sensor only good for super macro shots - my opinion).

I'm very curious to see some more shots from you, especially from that fantastic landscape of southern Bohemia. Am I right that your nightshot was taken near Lake Budar in the vicinity of Tabor?

From Vienna, where I live, I've already made numerous trips to your beautiful country, especially of course southern Bohemia and Moravia (Tabor, Pisek, Cesky Krumlov, Telc, Trebic etc). Very impressive and foto motives to be found all year round.

Kind regards
Michael

Hi Michael,

I was considering Panasonic G3 or GX1 myself, but in the end decided for GXR with A16 ... namely for its timelapse capabilities and possibility to set the focus to infinity (almost a "must" for stars photography).

Yes, you are right that the night shot was taken near Budar, it was above "Zadrazil", http://www.mapy.cz/#x=14.884567&y=49.513211&z=13 (the next one).

And yes, you are right that southern Bohemia and Moravia are photographer's paradise - I just wish I had more time for going there ... On the other side, I like your Alps very much - we often go to Rauris, hiking around there - see some of my timelapses from there

Kind regards,
Martin
