  • No, they don't alter the file for distortion, vignetting, etc. They just tag it. However, virtually any raw software out there can apply an appropriate fix as soon as you import the file. You can ...
  • Yeah, I never understood Leica's obsession with wanting to remove thermal noise (whether you wanted that fix or not) through dark subtraction on long exposures. Wasn't aware of the erroneous black ...
  • I don't own the X1D any longer (I or II), so can't do any testing on the magenta cast. Sorry. As to how Phocus software removes it, though, I might be able to provide an explanation. Tools to ...
  • I currently own the X2D and have owned the 907x in the past (the 50mp incarnation). I will assume that the sensor and related processing are identical in both the X2D and the 907X with the new ...
  • I currently own the 90v and have previously owned the 80mm and 90mm f/3.2. If you are not worried about the weight difference, the cost difference, or the extra photographic speed of the 80mm, then ...
  • Well, it was with an X2D rather than a GFX, but here is a recent shot of Mono Lake in X-Pan format. The light was mediocre, but I didn’t have much of a choice when to shoot it since I was driving ...
  • Thanks much, Tony!  It's going to be a hard one to produce good color data for... Too many bright stars in and near the fields of view.  I'm getting some really nasty reflections with everything ...
  • Yes, likely a leaf shutter artifact. See Jim's exploration of this issue here . I suspect that the use of a strobe could make the issue worse depending on the timing and duration of the strobe's ...
  • The next three nights look pretty decent--a little windier than I would like (which will force me to throw out about a third of the subs based on how things are going tonight), but I should be ...
  • The stacking software should align the different images, so each individual image should follow the 500 rule.  The only catch is that... When the stacking software aligns the images, any ...
  • Created discussion thread Horsehead and Flame in H-Alpha
    Eventually (in a week or two) this will end up as a full color image. But in the meanwhile, here are the H-alpha data for a widefield view of the Horsehead and Flame Nebulae. This is an eight ...
  • It's still single servo, not continuous. Haven't done enough testing yet to see if it tends to hit the iris or not.
  • Sorry, I'm not certain I am understanding your response correctly. Please let me know if I misunderstood. First, as to the K-5 producing really good results at ISO 80... DSLR's are capable of ...
  • Funny, this definitely is NOT the camera I would recommend for astrophotography. Sure, if you already own one, by all means try it out for astrophotography, either on a tripod or a guider. But as ...
  • Would not have guessed Simeis 147 (Spaghetti Nebula) was from downtown. It is fainter than most of the other narrowband objects in your calendar. Very nice work!
  • No way to tell which ones were done from Cologne, but any of the narrowband might have been done from a city. So my guess is: 1) Horsehead and Flame, SHO 2) Orion Nebula, SHO 3) Orion Nebula and ...
  • Have not tried using it for astrophotography yet, even though both my telescopes will support the 55mm imaging circle required. Too many down-sides as an astronomy camera—at least for multi-hour ...
  • Created discussion thread Annular Eclipse from Bryce Canyon
    Thought some of you might like this one... I'm with my wife for a few days in Sedona, AZ and decided to go to Bryce Canyon so I could see the annular eclipse from near the centerline. Had to drive ...
  • Fantastic images!  I considered trying to photograph the eclipse this year from the festival--Albuquerque was almost perfectly centered in the path of annularity. Decided that my inexperience in ...
  • Lovely image!  Well done! - Jared
