Laura, found out from your post what happened at the Dayton air show. Really tragic, those air show daredevils are some of the most bravest performers in the world.

Am feeling under the weather ... and I just got up at noon
I can't function with less than 6 hrs of sleep anyway
Some very lovely photos in the last couple of pages, what a way to wake up to

Samy here is my moon looking at yours, I had the 400mm with a TC 300 and a TC 14 which makes it an 1120mm, moon is bright. The disappointment was the atmosphere, so Hazy I had to wait a while for the moon to get off the haze before getting a reasonable picture. This was at f8 on the lens, f/22 on brightness, with all the TCs you have to close it down, but the shutter speed at ISO 800 is still 1/200, mirror up and shutter delay do the trick.

Much prefer the colors on this perigeal of a year ago with the 600 5.6P Nippon kogaku. Lower res is all atmospheric.

And this is my sharpest ever, with the 400mm TC 300 TC 201 and the TC 14 for 2240mm. Took this the night Neil Armstrong passed.

Wonderful Rafael. That last shot is spectacular! Fine work. I think that is the best moon shot I've seen on FM.

Dave : As curtis wrote I don't use tripod and he gave good tips
try to learn meself and keeps experiment a bit.. very fun to shot with tubs
The image is 180mm is about 45 inches and 135mm about 31 inch from the subject
find it tricky to shot with tripod on these kinds of pictures so I almost never use tripod

Thanks Curts, Dayton's my adopted town though. And no, I don't need a sherpa, lugged it through the tour, then used it a bit at the show as well. I do have one book that weighs in at 8.8 pounds. I'm just amazed that I was actually able to focus it and get some good shots.

I thought about you Laura when I saw the news story about the plane crash. I figured you'd be at the air show in your home town. Great photos but definitely a tragic event. Wing walking seems dangerous enough but a plane crash did him and the pilot in. Really a shame.

300 f/2.8? Do you have a sherpa with you to carry the lens? That's five pounds of lens... but then you're carrying a book bag most days now, so perhaps it is not a problem. But I'll stick with the f/4.5 version that I can hand hold all

It sure is a risky business. Luckily, nobody on the crowd was injured, as can happen. The files from my cameras are loaded up on DVD's now to hand in to the FAA/NTSB in case there's anything there they can use.

I also heard the news about the crash. A very sad news, indeed.

I got a bit of time today so I decided to make modification to my TC-16A. It's working. Took with the 105mm f2.8 AIS Micro.

I love these kind of shots, and this one is super. That Kodachrome was something special.

Chuong, congrats on the D600, you're gonna love it! And what a nice "test" image.

One color photo is in order. I noticed this flower hidden in shadows with a bit of filtered light catching my eye. Wide open with the 135 f/2.8 Q.C. AI'd. Love this lens...

I told Kevin I wasn't interested in buying a 135mm at the moment, but you sure make it hard to say no with shots like this.

Like others, you were the first person I thought of when I saw this tragic news.

Laura, I sometimes feel I am foolish since I inevitably find my way right up to the fence to get the closest view of the performances, but those souls up in the air are the ones taking the risk.

One of the news items I read said the pilot managed to veer the plane away from the crowd. The wingwalker's story seems very tragic, she planned to wed as part of the show to a fellow wingwalker next year.

Washington DC yesterday from the observation area at the top of the Old Post Office building. This building as I understand has been bought by Donald Trump and is going to be converted to a hotel.

Leighton, very very cute "free advertising" pic, and love that inky blue sky against the bright multi-rayed stars from the lights outside the dimly lit home.

Scott, thanks, I don't know the name of that skinny plant with the little flowers is, that has some possibilities at a couple other focal lengths I want to try out in good light.

Ronny, thanks, and your extension tube work with any of your lenses is always marvelous. Beautiful flowers.

Luc, very nice bright red color behind that hook!

Chuong, very nice isolation, sharpness and color on the first flower with the 300 4.5 and PK-13.

Curtis, nice conversions on the statue. Some day I will look into software like SEP. For now my aging MBP can not even stitch panos in PSE.

Laura, nice closeup of "Fifi". At the Reading WW 2 show a couple weeks ago after it landed, it was parked pretty far away from public access.

Rafael, that last image is one superb moon!!! That's the kind of view I have seen through my reflector telescope, now gathering dust in the garage. The best day to get crater details is about 2-3 days before or after full moon. Your image is inspiring me to try and stay awake long enough on perhaps Tuesday to get the 500 outside, this time with the TC16A or TC301.
