Old, schmold!! If it takes a good photo use it!! I'm actually thinking of getting my old D1x fixed for just that reason.

Looks like a great day for photography and you got some good captures.


#265035 Did l crop too much?

Posted by justshootit on 03 April 2021 - 04:53 PM

Yep me too -- even a half inch below the chin would have been better.

#264911 Ok with moon photos but having problems with planets

As my people say, go raibh maith agat gents. I'm actually thinking of selling the Tamron and trying to land a 400/3.5 Nikkor but there's also the 600/4 AI Nikkor that can be had for a reasonable price and a TC300. Will let you all know if I go this route.

Very cool Herman!!  If I bought that program, I'd likely spend WAY too much time with it.




#264881 Ok with moon photos but having problems with planets

Posted by justshootit on 28 December 2020 - 01:52 AM

I got these two moon photos Saturday night, but the planets not so much.  I have a Tamron 400/4 with the 1.4x and 2x Adaptall converters and a Nikkor 300/2.8 AFS with the Nikon 1.4x TC.  The third photo is a composite of Jupiter and Saturn taken with the 400 with both TCs on it.  It's heavily cropped, not terribly sharp, and has a ton of coma around Jupiter.  I compare this with teh shot of Jupiter that Jim got with the P900 and I wonder what I'm doing wrong.  I also tried shooting Mars Saturday night with multiple different lens / TC combinations, but all I got was either a bleached white ball with an orange fringe or an orange ball with a darker orange fringe.  Am I expecting too much out of my equipment?  The last photo (the little one) is a deep crop from a shot of one of the stars in Orion's belt and there seems to be some detail in it unless that's some kind of artifact.

 

Any thoughts??

What a pain in the @$$. This is part of the reason I hate FB - too many computer-geek demigods who spend all their time there and would literally burst into flames if they actually went outside on a sunny day :lol: I got flamed on one group for quoting an idea that some of the members thought was "too simplistic." There'd been enough BS on the group previously that I just dropped it.

This is all the more reason we need to make sure this forum stays up & healthy.
