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...

Curtis I like how this pops out of the shadows.

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


+1 Rafael. Wonderful detail.

Not a bad view. Is that some kind of street festival going on down below?

Wow! I love this shot Leighton. So happy to stopped to take it. I guess we'll eternally be thanking Rinie for that phrase the "blue hour." I'd always heard it mentioned in the evening, but it surely fits this scene as well. You live a life very unlike most of the folks on this thread. I have deep respect for what you and Barbara do.

Both stunners. Great work. I don't think about teleconverters for close work but I guess the advantage is you don't lose infinity focus. Fascinating.

We went over to the youngest daughters for a get together yesterday afternoon. The light and sky were spectacular! Barbara insisted on a group photo. The more I use the 50/1.2, the more I like it.

Its much too wholesome for me Leighton... all you healthy, hard working farmers. If you'd had a glass of beer in your hand I'd relax a bit...

Actually, a beautiful family. Nice to know there are actually a few hours when you and Barbara aren't working. I'm assuming these young women are both your daughters... right?

NOTHING in life is better than doing what you love doing. You are a blessed man Leighton. I feel the same way but fortunately, I'M RETIRED... Of course, that means I have much too much time to be shopping for lenses...

I think I need a job...

Thanks Scott and Curtis.

We do take time off more than you know! I had a couple of Heinkens, so not to worry. Yes, both of them are my daughters and their husbands.

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.


Thank you Samy, allow me to share the techie side of getting that shot, I piled up the converters, one TC300, one TC 201 and one TC 14. The image is not cropped top to bottom. The quality of the lens is much lowered, but still better than 15 miles of atmosphere looking straight up or 100+ early in the rise/set. I closed the lens to f8 to get reasonable performance. Set the left top dial to mirror up,and exposure delay menu to three seconds, I use a cable release and set the ISO to 800, as the D800 gets noisy over 800, still great but it will lose detail on the low contrast moon once the noise is processed out.

Focused on magnified live view, kept refocusing for each couple of shots, as most would be ever so slightly out of focus, shot by pressing the cable release twice, once to lift the mirror, then again a few seconds later to take the shot, with an additional delay of three seconds set in the menu.

Took about 40 shots and only two made the grade. If you use the TC301 and the 500, with no more converters. you will get a much higher keeper rate and the cropped moon may be better than my full frame with all the glass piled on. Try lower iso as well, the crop will be even better.

PS, on my 400mm I would stay away from the TC16a, AF does not help here, and the TC 301 is better.

Sorry about the wordy description, looking forward to your lunar shoot!

You need a part time job in the local camera store. Just think of all the lenses you could sell...AND buy!

The local stores no longer have Nikon MF lenses for sale or being traded, Curtis would have to stray from his true beliefs!

Internet trading would work, open up the GrindahlBay!

That would be dangerous Leighton. At the moment I'm trying to GET BACK two lenses I gave that camera shop on consignment. I realized after signing the deal that I likely could get a better price on FM since I wouldn't be paying a hefty commission. I have a 105 f/2.5 P and 50 f/1.4 S pre-AI lenses created when I swapped out aperture rings. As much wheeling and dealing as I do I probably should go into business...
