I thought Studio 54 was where they had all manner of bizarre life forms regularly showing up and Area 51 was where only humans danced?

A lens to work with your infrared camera. Everyone knows extraterrestrials aren't visible in normal light.

even worse than that, the species that show up to Earth regularly are only visible, even in photos of any sort, to those who believe in them, if a believing observer observes one or a photograph of one then they are dropped into a human visible quantum state in that observer's newly split parallel universe while non-believer's see nothing since their act of observing the alien makes the aliens quantum state not appear in that observer's newly split parallel universe

something like that, it's all quite simple really

One spot that you can see it from is 26 miles away. Hope you have some serious optics and perfect seeing conditions. Oh, and one little detail ... the best stuff happens after sunset, so night vision high powered optics is what you really need.

If there were any practical vantage point, then the real answer would probably be to use a 6- to 8-inch astronomical refractor, and shoot through the eyepiece with a web cam at a time of excellent seeing. Then use image stacking software to sort out the inevitable atmospheric instabilities. That technique has enabled skilled amateurs to take pictures that disclose some (very limited) detail on Jupiter's larger moons.

If you had the opportunity to shoot Area 51, what lens body combination(s) would you take?

My contribution to the “What lens would you choose?” question.

Jefferson


Take a great zoomrange with you. I would choose an invisible lens (and body).
Good luck! Sign the NDA with another name and please, please, post some images here

You're not going to get anywhere near 'stuff' worth shooting at Groom Lake, unless you like to shoot vast empty desert.

Hi,

I usually use my 24-105L for the "walk around the alien spacecraft" shots, in addition to the 135L for portraits of the visitors, and long-term exchange pilots. It keeps me far enough away from their teeth (and breath) when they yawn. I also bring the 15mm FE for those interior shots of the spacecraft prior to mods (to add Dish Network and pizza ovens, ect) for proof that the cattle-for-technology exchange program is being managed correctly, and our visitors are getting their "cattle-worth"...

And what about Area 52?....hmm....I really can't talk about that....

Spatially yours,

Edd

I'd use the Hubble. Don't think it would fit in my Urban Disguise though!

Watch out for the camo dudes. Check out Trevor Paglen's work -- he's photographed all kinds of black ops from miles away with telescopes hooked up to a camera: http://www.paglen.com/pages/projects/nowhere/august_2004_tonopah_groom.htm
