Look around you will find many timers with different configurations from $19 knockoff's to Canon's high price. If you are using Canon's you can always fix/replace under warranty. LOLLLL But then you already know about getting camera's repaired. Nice that you can try one out in FT Worth Camera Shoppe. I find that some of the menu systems and ease of operation goes along way towards customer satisfaction. Some of the timer menu's are darn right confusing and hard to operate.

This is my first moon pic with my new telescope. From my balcony. Moon was still low in the sky, so I expect better when I am looking through less atmosphere. (Also I need the moon to wane a little more. (Last quarter moon will be best.)

From my balcony tonight. Jupiter and 3 of its moons. A bit breezy up here tonight so I had to speed up my shot. (3200 ISO) And like 1/30 second. Seems like a bit overexposed however. Anyway it's a billion million from here. (817 Million miles)

400mm +2X (I guess around 800mm)

I think the Contrails actually send radio signals to the controllers radar screens. Easier to track the aircraft flying overhead.

If it doesnt look right on the controllers radar screens, they can just step out side and look up to verify aircraft flight direction, altitude and air speed.

I am thinking differently on this 360. I do remember this. I spent 4 years on an Aircraft Carrier as an Intelligence Specialist. (IS2). In the ships Intelligence Center (CVIC) we gave briefings to the pilots sitting in their Ready Rooms before each launch. (Every 90 minutes, every hour at sea). In those Closed Circuit TV briefings, in every case, the weather specialist told the pilots at which altitudes they would have contrails.
(Expect contrails at flight level 350, or whatever) I never asked (No need to know) how it was predicted. I never heard why is was predicted but assumed a sneaky fighter did not care to have 5 miles of contrails hanging off it's A$$. It is apparent it is a weather phenomenon for sure as they don't always have contrails. Certain humidity, temps and barometric pressures etc... I speculate. Just as I say this, some pilot will respond with contradictory and correct information. But then we will know. smilewinkgrin.gif

BTW, as an Intelligence Specialist, I spent quite a bit of time hanging out of an HS-7 helecopter (in a harness) with a camera and a 700mm lens taking pictures of Russian Ships, Subs etc... Not really terrribly different than hanging off of my balcony with a big lens. (I am just putting 2 & 2 together here)

OK. Go ahead and laugh. This is the ISS with the space shuttle attached tonight.

As if you can't tell by the image, I am still working on a plan. Crazy deal when you are taking a picture of a tiny dot in a black sky. (Put that light meter away, fool.) Must use a manual setting or the space station is terribly over-exposed. (Spot metering doesn't cover a spot this small.)

Unless I cheat and research taking pics of this thing (And I am not going to cheat) it is somewhat just trial and error.

The first problem is focus. As I am using my 2x on my 400 5.6L I have to focus manually. (Canon can't auto focus anything with an aperture smaller than 5.6 and I am at 11 with this setup. Then exposure. Took a stab at 125th of a second at 11 with 6400 ISO.

Obviously this shot is not going to hang in the NASA museum. But I got something. More than before. Problem is, the shuttle and space station are only visible just before dawn and just after dusk. Or else I could focus on a star, which I think is the same as the shuttle optically. (I speculate)
I am going to figure this out eventually. Stand by...

Instead of using auto focus - I use a "lens sweet spot" specific f/stop and shutter speed value and calculate the hyper focal value instead of infinity.

You can fill in the values

List select Camera = Canon 5d (Mark II)

Focal Length (mm) 400 x 2x = 800 mm
F/stop = f/11

use 10,000 feet or better calculated value

press the [Calculate] button

Then read on right side

Subject distance 10,000 ft

Depth of Field
Near = 3,822.6 ft
Far Limit = Inifinity
Total = Infinity

Depth of field in focus zone
In front of subject = 6,177.4 ft
Behind subject Infinity

Hyperfocal distance [found on lens focus ring] 6,189 ft
Circle of confusion "CoC" for the 5d Mark II .03 mm

Thank you 360. But are you sure that ain't cheating?

It always would seem to me that if you turn a focus ring all the way in one direction, that would be infinity. (I know that is not the case, but I wish it was)

Here is a shot of the Moon from last night at 11pm. (Waning gibbous) 400x2 from balcony.
If I had a little better flash I could have made it a full moon for you.

I am a guy that historically likes cloudy and rainy days. I have finally had enough. If my memory serves me we have had one sunny day in three weeks. Surely that is a record our local weather guys have not figured out yet. I believe (in an un-informed, talking out my ying-yang kind of way) that we have never had this few moments of sun in a 30 day period. At least this time of year.

Of course I have literally been living in a cloud for a month which exaggerates the problem...

For those few multi 'no sun' day sequences, we suggest locating a 2 x 2 x 2 foot packing box. Cut holes in the left and right box panels. Attach and turn ON 2 60 watt light bulbs, Insert head for no more than 20 minutes each day.

Hopefully the sun will come out soon. ohmy.gif rolleyes.gif

Was down by the Trinity last night (Fourth Street near Sylvania) for this setting moon. About 11pm. Moon is a bit overexposed. I thought I was shooting in RAW as well as JPEG but was just JPEG. But worth a look.

Here is your Fair Building Cbellomy. I love it also. Surely the number one most underrated building in all of Fort Worth.

Two shots of the rising Waning Gibbous moon over Dallas.

This initial shot was at 30 seconds, by accident. Interesting with the plane landing but the moon is a dud as in 30 seconds it has too much movement to be useful.



A little better. (This stuff is trial and error for sure. Stand by however...)

Hey, thanks for the nice comments guys! I defer all credit to the weather. Well, maybe just 90%. laugh.gif I'll take credit for having my camera charged up and lenses handy.

BTW, my wife does hate my gear hanging around the living room of our small condo. I have fantasies of designing furniture that is really photo gear storage. (It looks like a stink'n couch but lift up the top and there in tidy custom compartments are my lenses, camera, tripod etc, etc...) Guess that isn't going to happen, but something needs to give.

Captain, you really have to think long and hard if you want to be on my FOG ALERT 5 am phone call list. tongue.gif
Some fogs are better than others of course. Sunday, I hit pay-dirt...

Sunday was strange how the fog left downtown and then was everywhere else as the sun rose. It was as though the conditions were right on the line for fog and the downtown area was slightly too warm. (I credit my wife's excessive use of her blow dryer)

I am a guy way-OK with cloudy days. But... I get a bit unhappy when I have no sun at all on a weekend for photos. And this weekend it was even hazy/humid/polluted or generally icky.
I therefore was pretty pleased when I notice the moon shining through the clouds this evening. (Behind the clouds in this shot.)

Nothing to alert National Geographicİ over but here it is anyway.

This morning's sun rise. Pretty clear sky. I can surely say I have never take a picture with this exposure. 1/8000 of a sec. at F32. Pardon me if that makes the surrounding landscape a bit under-exposed. Guessing this is the landscaping of Duncanville. No telling what all that ground stuff is. Antennas, Oil wells, the clothes lines from Hell or whatever. Have wondered if I could properly expose a bright sun. This is close.

A tiny bit more editing. Since we take spherical panorama imaging... we often think imaging should be round.

Since some other folks take rectangular images.. I put in a 1 pixel thick edge border.

360 liking round pics? What gives? I like.

Here is a shot from yesterday and one from this morning.

This morning's sunrise with 2 good contrails. (You just have to figure these two guys are going and coming from the same place.



During yesterday's Cowtown race I kept noticing this helicopter. Flew between the buildings. Was curious enough about the chopper to look up his digits.
Is registered to Sundance Projects LLC. (May or may not have anything to do with Fort Worth's Sundance Square.) Took this one shot and cropped to show you how the pilot sees me on my balcony. I have other pics where he is pointing to me. (Have I just gone mad?)

You should ring them up and see if you can piggyback for some promotional photo-ops.

Helicopters that size must run $300.00 to $500.00 per flight hour to run, on the low side, they must be doing pretty good financially.
