Angus Rose: The angle of view is so narrow, the aperture is so high and the glass is so heavy, that it becomes unsuitable for almost everything. I'd rather save a lot of money by using my brain to move my legs, to get closer to the subject.
Less than that beast. you can Buy a Pro Celestron 14 inch mirror (300+ millimeter) computerized, with a tripod for less than 10k.
Like this article, gets to the point.
jkoch2: What ISO and shutter time would work? The few dim streaks my eyes ever see last under one second and occur only one or two times per minute. Urban light overwhelms all but the brighter stars. More might be visible atop a remote mountain, but still not be brilliant enough to produce sharp streaks. Easier to photograph lightning. Maybe Adobe could offer a "Perseid effect" to help me add streaks to my pictures. Or maybe pinstripe decals on my window would do the same thing, so I don't have to spend a night in some eery place.
I had use ASA 800 and 20 secs exposure, but will recommend a higher ASA, I was going to try 2000 ASA last sunday, but if you look for my previous comment you'll see what happened.
Here in Panama rained from sunday night until tuesday afternoon, I wanted so much to see it... Well maybe next year.
First time I took fireworks, was too far away...
Hope we could have it here... =(
The first one, sue the hell out of them and make sure everyone finds out.
Francis Carver: Couple of these gizmos might have a chance of succeeding in the real, brutal marketplace. But many are obvious stillborn.
Particularly the last one, the Astro Motorized Timelapse/Motion Controller. Amazing to me how they expect to have the camera mount screw to also function as a POWER ON/OFF button. Dumbest thing I probably ever heard. Once you mount the camera with this crew, how you gonna push the camera mount screw UP/DOWN to turn the thing ON/OFF? Stupid.
I think your supposed to turn it on first and then attach the camera.
I'm going to the beach house to take some picts of it. Since it has no electricity it get's very dark at night.
Like the article, but prefer the second attempt on the first dat.
"we can remove the ex-partner from the party shot" With this phrase the whole article just sink to the Nth circle.
LoganVii: I'm thinking on buying a camera bag, what would you recommend, a backpack or a shoulder bag?

Mssimo: 18-55mm lens is perfect for ASTRONOMY...right?
I use a Celestron C-8 as a lens, no need for a 2x or 3x TC.
I'll try it this weekend. Congrats!
One question, did they ever "registered" the look of their film... It was an easy way to make some bucks a few years ago.
