On article Stellina: imaging the sky with a smart telescope (233 comments in total)

You could buy a real telescope with auto aiming and also a real camera for much less than the price of this thing. This is total worthless junk packaged on an attractive modern looking shell.

If they are private streets, they can control access to the streets. If they are public streets, nobody can stop having the kids in the neighborhood wear gaudy t-shirts with politically incorrect or obscene slogans from parading in front of the camera and interfering with the photo shoot. The homeowners or the HOA could even pay the kids to do it. Also, if the photographers go on private property, nobody can interfere w the homeowners turning on their sprinkler systems with the spray directed onto the public sidewalks.

One of the respondents suggested using drones to interfere w the photographers. Love that idea.

A wildlife propane cannon - - would also work.

On article Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 Review (89 comments in total)

I do not own the product so I am commenting on the basis of the review only. To me, it sounds like a totally crappy camera attached to a non-phone. However, I guess that the social media types who buy these sort of things are incapable of and are uninterested in knowing anything about photography and are only capable and/or interested in taking selfies of themselves blocking whatever object they are standing in front of. To them, it will probably be a great product.

Seems like all that this ap does is to take lousy photographs and make them even worse. In my opinion, it is worthless junk.
