    Steen, excellent. You really make me miss the Danish summers. I spent almost every summer holiday of my life in Denmark, until I moved here.

    To compensate, I watch the going round and round in circles... beetles are fun.

    And thank you. To be honest, I love what I have.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Thanks both of you. It took me a while to figure out how to do it right. Still my hit-rate is relatively low, but I go to the gym 2-4 times a week to practice the movement with 30-50kg counterweight. That helps a lot. Helps against other things as well

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Jorgen, Rayyan: you guys are apparently doing a lot of chimping. Is it spring?

    (Aircon is indeed very,er, cool, btw. He probably needs that after close-up D-maxing)


    Woody: at least you use your telescope for more noble tasks, loke flowers. Or are you?


    Steen, very cool landscapes you have here. Delicate light, shades of green, some yellow, a bit of sea. Fav is probably the last one, with the boat on the horizon. A lot of serenity in all of these.


    Matt: funky neighborhood. The goat is excellent -and looks quite happy. Maybe simply aware of the luck of living in such a quiet, peaceful environment.

    More seriously, nice setup, and the potential looks promising.
    I've been entertaining the idea though never really investigated thoroughly. Are the Nikon adapters easy to find and set up? Are there telescope brands more suited for the task?

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Interesting setup, Woody. Now that you have shown us how, could you please elaborate on why
    I do have a Leica Televid 77 birding telescope myself, but so far I haven't tried to mount my camera on it.
    I mean I realize you get an unusual bunch of reach, but don't you have to struggle with an extremely modest maximum aperture with such a combination ?
    And isn't it difficult to focus the telescope with accuracy ?

    The telescope's aperure is f6.0. It has a very finely geared focuser - focus has been very easy on the ground glass.

    Maybe I should take a closer look at the possibility of connecting my camera to my birding telescope. Food for thoughts. Thanks Woody.

    Thanks Steen.
    Unfortunately the D3X "dies" after 1600 (quite or even extremely usable to that point, though). Which, for a relatively newcomer into shooting DP himself -but not dealing with, who used to struggle shooting dim light action portraits, no flash allowed with 400 ASA films and f2.8 zooms or f4 tele in the last century... it's fine

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Thanks all for the nice words. You're way too kind. I was indeed surprised when looking at the files and how well they handled PP. It was outside some time before dark so there was still a fait amount of light, overcast sky after raining. A lower ISO with slower shutter speed could have been used in those conditions (i actually did), with different and it that case lesser results. So it's not a torture test... interesting though.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Alex, these are very nice. The first one might need a little bit of PP when you're back on your usual system in order to match your usual look, still very promising. The second one is already excellent, with a right on control of the highlights for this long exposure. And as Steve rightfully noted, the lines work extremely well.

    Looking forward to see more from your tribulations!

    From the last series of landscapes, one i kinda like. From print file (so it might look a bit oversharpened here):

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Great series Jason, all of them. I particularly like the light, details and sense of space in the third one, while still preserving the moment. And, in my book, for many reasons (among which, the relation between the intimacy of the moment and the suggested context of the city is unique) the first one is simply award material. Seriously.
