Stanley, I am jealous! This is the current view outside the back of my office, near whiteout conditions, very unusual for us. The pavilion sits on a lake, I have never seen it covered like that, it is currently 6 degrees with a windchill of -10.

I've shared other photos of the Orion Nebula pictured here but this is the first taken with the XF/IQ4150 attached to my Takahashi telescope. The basic photo is stitched from two frames and then cropped. Most of the red ionized hydrogen gas in the surrounding area was photographed separately with a monochrome astronomy camera using a hydrogen-alpha filter. This is a target I keep returning to as I try to find the perfect balance between what we can see with our eyes and what the camera can see.

It took a bit of doing to get the XF attached. I ended up using a Takahashi Pentax 67 adapter and then a Pentax 67 to Mamiya adapter. I do get a little vignetting but it is corrected using a LCC in Capture One.

Very nice work, Craig. I had a Takahashi FSQ when they first came out and along with all of the Takahashis I have had, the focus draw is terribly short. Glad you found a way to make it work, it isn't always easy!

High Rise public housing project by the Housing and Development Board. Kallang Trivista was completed in May 2016. The project has 808 units spread across three residential blocks standing at 26 to 30 storeys. There are 99 Studio Apartments/2-room Flexi1, 168 3-room, 431 4-room and 110 5-room flats. Singapore is a rather expensive country, and typical pricing of these flats which range from SGD 620k to SGD 1.1M for units of about 750 sf to 1050 sf in gross floor area.


Hasselblad H3D-39 with HCD 4/28. BW and raw convesion in Phocus. Photographed from the 15th story of the block across the road.

Mountains and farmlands are rapidly turning green in Northern California after good amount of rain in last few weeks. Though I couldn't find a scene I was looking for, I was fortunate to find this typical spring vineyard scene from parking lot of winery.

It is the first week of the lunar new year, the Year of the Ox. I finally managed to get out this evening to take in the sunset and twilight over San Francisco. Xin Nian Kuai Le - Happy New Year!
