  • Not a bad choice on the astrophotography side, but not so great visually.  A fast Newtonian that can fully illuminate an APS-C chip is going to have a much larger central obstruction than One ...
  • Shorten the exposure more.  You won’t lose the moons.  And you might get a couple cloud bands on Jupiter.
  • I think it would be hard, even with gyros, to get things stable enough for multi-s cons exposures.  Plus, your drone/camera combo would need to allow the camera to point high enough for a sky shot. ...
  • It is possible to use the C90 with a barlow or for eypiece projection photography for additional magnification.  This is potentially helpful for planets, but virtually nothing else.  Almost any ...
  • The problem you are going to run into is that a scope that is well suited for general purpose visual astronomy is likely not well suited (or at least very challenging) for astrophotography. For ...
  • Let's assume you want the same field out view out of either (the 10mm's field of view) and want to know which will get you to a given signal to noise ratio faster... Effectively, you would need to ...
  • I agree with Chris.  If it’s new, you should certainly return it for a replacement.  This has not been a consistent issue with Fuji’s, so likely a new body would not exhibit any of these issues. ...
  • Not much chance, I’m afraid. The raison d’etre for the S has been to provide a DSLR experience in a medium format body.  In my view, that precludes the use of the existing Sony chip with its 4:3 ...
  • I’m not saying you haven’t correctly diagnosed your issue,  it why would longer focal length lenses be less suceptible to tilt?  I would expect slower lenses to be less susceptible, but wouldn’t ...
  • Got it, thanks!  I had been thinking in terms of focus stacking not dynamic range, but I guess the motion blur I thought I saw in the clouds was my imagination.
  • In general, I much prefer primes because my picture taking habits are much better when I am limited to one (or a couple) focal lengths.  Instead of arriving at a scene and saying, "Ooh, that's ...
  • Interestingly, I just checked my 45mm lens to see if it is the same as the 90mm...  It isn't.  It still works the same way, but it looks like the mechanism is put in backwards from the 90mm.  The ...
  • Beautiful light and great shot.  Well done.  Is it a stacked image by any chance?  It looks like there is more motion in the clouds than I would expect from a single exposure.  Just curious--not a ...
  • I like some of the others in the series better, but definitely a solid shot that will add to the overall package.  There's just a bit less mystery and oddity in this one, somehow.
  • Replied in Cold Shoulder
    Very well composed and lit, and plenty of attitude in that look.  Very nice.
  • Here is one from the 4th--Fireworks in San Francisco taken through the fog.  This was taken in the Berkeley Hills.  I actually had to drive down fairly low to get under the fog that was blowing in ...
  • While there have been a few creative answers on this thread, I'm not sure any of us can provide you any really useful advice without understanding a bit more about your photography.  If you were ...
  • Based on some of the comments you have made in this thread, it sounds like what you are trying to determine is whether you are better off with a larger sensor that you would then crop down to a ...
  • I find the OOF areas very nice, at least in the 45mm and 90mm.  Haven't had any 30mm images where it was relevant yet.  Of course, bokeh is generally a matter of taste as much as it is anything ...
  • I hadn't realized that.  Is this to account for typical focus shift for the lens?  Adjust the focus point in our out slightly from the measurement made with the lens wide open based on the fact ...
