Non Av Pic Thread, First Quarter 2013

Sat Jan 05, 2013 8:33 am

New year, new thread! Despite the ongoing protests, Cairo remains a safe, fun, friendly and facinating place to visit. And it's great for pics:

This is a quasi-aviation photo, but too bad.  

The San Gabriel peaks catching the last of the daylight. From left to right: Mt. Baldy (10068'), Telegraph Peak (8985') and the twin Ontario (8693')and Cucamonga (8862') peaks. Shot from Imperial Hill - those peaks are about 50 miles away.

That was taken in Cambridge, UK (as well as the frosty morning one in pic 4). Beautiful city with plenty of character. I was sloppy by not posting locations, so just for the record, the other pics are 2: Dublin, 3: Roundwood, Co Wicklow (IRL), 5: Dublin, and 6: Co Dublin.

Sorry 'bout that!

Was pic 4 taken from Jesus Green facing southwest towards the houses on Park Parade with the tower of St John's College in the background?

The first pic I'm guessing was taken near the eastern end of Trinity Lane facing west.

Andromeda - I forget if this edit was one exposure or multiple, but they were at 3.2s, F4, ISO6400

All taken with a 50D + 300 F4L IS.

Quoting GrahamHill (Reply 32):
but it's quite difficult if you don't have a dedicated tool that follows the rotation of the Earth.

Hell yeah it is. My major obstacles were 1.) air/light pollution, 2.) lens/camera vibration (had to use mirror lockup, remote, etc.), and 3.) subject movement. All that required a much higher ISO and lower aperture than I'd otherwise want to use.

I was just doing some checking to see what that satellite was, given how bright it was - turns out it was Hubble.

Love your pics, Braqybuddy (as always), and particularly #1 and #3 of your 1st post.

Thank you, and as I'm just back from holidays will have some new ones to post over the next week or so. And you've some very nice pics there too NoUFO. Out of interest, where were they taken? I'm guessing Spain, but could be completely wrong.

I did a couple new edits of the Orion Nebula and the Andromeda Galaxy - it was a challenge of trying to pull out data against a rather light-polluted sky, while cutting down on noise. The Andromeda edit is 3 exposures layered; the Orion is just one exposure:

Great work! Man, I would love to get into studio photography but unfortunately I find it very intimidating. I'm still very weak when it comes to lighting. Then I have the issue of directing people...

Amazing!

I visited Yosemite National Park with a group of photography friends I have met on Flickr over the years. The purpose of the trip was to catch the Horsetail "Firefall". Had a GREAT time. There was no time for sleep. It was 100% all about the photography as there was plenty to shoot at all hours! So far I have three shots edited from the trip and I'm very excited to get to the rest of them. So many great photo opportunities in Yosemite!

A darker night and longer exposure allowed me to get a bit more Orion Nebula visible last night (though obviously, also some blur, but oh well, nebulas are pretty indistinct anyway). Also visible are nebulae NGC 1973/1975/1977 at the top:

All 4 Galilean moons of Jupiter visible this time (from top to bottom: Callisto, Europa and Ganymede clumped together, and Io):

I didn't realize until tonight that I had another shot of Jupiter and the Moon where you could see a couple of Jupiter's moons. So, it's composite time (Io and Ganymede visible around Jupiter):

Well, it was a pretty difficult task, but I did manage to get some images of comet Pan-STARRS this evening. Had to keep taking photos till it showed up in one of them, because you couldn't see it with the naked eye:

Wide shot showing how low and faint it was:

And while I was out, a shot of the Double Cluster (open star clusters NGC 869 and 884):
