  • for me, I quite like taking a few pictures of the Milky Way now and again whilst out camping in the hills, it's super dark out there so I use that to my advantage. When meteor showers present ...
  • I didn't know there was a whole world dedicated to capturing these :-O
  • Yep, I've already named it 'Izzy', the Iridium Flare :-D
  • I'm not going to venture out tonight, I hope you have some luck if you end up having a look out. Last night was only the second time I'd attempted meteors, I'll keep a look out for the next decent ...
  • yes that pesky moon came up to spoil the show, glad you got some though. I suppose it isn't a wasted trip as you get to see a damn good show, even if you only get few on camera, or non at all in ...
  • I wish 2016 hadn't been cloudy, I hear that was a good year for the Perseids. Yes I've been looking through your flickr album, there are some super images in there :-)
  • thanks for the additional advice Roger
  • haha I'm glad, I'd have been a little red faced as I'd told a few friends about that one at the time. But Roger has now helped me distinguish between a satellite flare, I'd never heard of them ...
  • excellent advice there Jack, thanks. Yes the timelapse app is a funny one, you have to go into it and then press the menu button... but there's no prompt for the menu button. If you use the ...
  • thanks for the advice Roger. I used to have the Samyang 24mm F1.4 but passed that on to a friend in favour of the 14mm. With those two it's a little of six and two threes as to the balance between ...
  • cheers Jack, I'd set the whole thing up with the sony timelapse app as I've used it before to capture a beautiful Milky Way timelapse, albeit a very short one. As for focus, I'm a bit OCD on this ...
  • I meant to say, I had the RX100 pointed towards the MW as a tester for it's first night time shoot, and I had the A7 pointed at Ursa Major as that was where I was seeing the bulk of the meteors
  • Created discussion thread Meteor exposure time
    hello all So I was out last night attempting to capture the Perseids and ended up scratching my head at the disappointing results, even though I'd seen meteors within the cameras field of view. I'm ...
  • I've received an email informing me they're going to try and match anyway and send a test calendar. We'll see how that looks. They state they've never had a 'blue tone' issue with any prints... I ...
  • Hi Phil My images are all sRGB and yes they are using a 4 colour process, whereas I'm using an 8 colour device for my outputs. I never expected to get 100% exact copies but the cool tone across the ...
  • Created discussion thread External printing advice
    Hello all I was just after some advice with regards having items printed externally by printing companies. I spent a few weeks looking for a printing company to print calendars. I've tried ...
  • well... I wasn't 100% convinced that full range toggle would do anything but now I have actual blacks! Thanks so much for finding that and posting it here Ian
  • cheers Ian, food for thought there. I have an nvidia card in my laptop so when I hook it up to the monitor I may have experienced one of these documented issues at some point. The monitor did come ...
  • hey guys, thanks for the feedback. I have a Dell UltraSharp U2414H monitor. I think the biggest difference I find is that my images are now lighter/brighter on devices which haven't been ...
  • I didn't set a 'target' as such, I used the easy mode and let the colormunki measure the ambient light in the room. I think it set it at 133, I can't quite remember... it may have been less. I'm ...
