Re: The moon this week

Reflected Setting

Got a Moonset at dawn this morning and a few other shots.Also a picture of the Hilux and the Stars for Mark.They may look nice Mark but I would take my old Landcruisers anyday for serious offroad under load.

Re: Couple of Days Worth

Thanks.Rainer that hue is due to the canon Ra being in Cloudy White balance .Due to its greater Ha sensitivity it does weird things in early morning and late afternoon light.I could correct it but I like the effect.

Re: Sunshine and tinkering continued 25/6/2020

Boring I highly doubt it.That is a very informative post and goes to show that with Solar it’s an ongoing experiment.Interesting that f seems to me to lie somewhere between a and c .It will be good to see what the DS unit achieves with each of these setting. A lot of configurations but worth it.
