Thanks for the positive vibes. Pretty happy with how this one turned out given that it was very dark when I shot it.

You can pull a lot from those RAW files huh

Jay is that also a result of that multistop ND filter you were using?

Yes You Can!!

No, that's Mother Nature taking the light away! 500mm f/4 @ 1/125 .. f/4!

So I've been having an issue with getting this ballhead to tighten properly. Closer inspection shows that the ball is cracked and a large chunk is flat-out missing!

Do be sure to preflight your gear!! The camera and lens you save may be your own!

Oh! It's a pizza oven!! When's the MA2A Pizza Gathering?! Nothing like great gourmet pizza at hand while you're working on your Cobra project!!



Hm, well, I will speak to Alan nicely and see....the thought occurs that a bunch of us might be assembled for the Moto GP races, although I don't know how feasible it will be to prepare dough while we are at the racetrack.... Let me mull upon that for a bit.



That would be beyond the call of duty Lady Jo. We'll buy pizza and have fun hanging out. Gourmet Hunter pizza when you're ready down the road.

Gotta tell Ya, as much as I've always wanted a Mustang, that airplane and a million seven left over wouldn't be much of a compromise. My Buddy who owns it could buy any plane he took a fancy to, and pay for it by peeling off 100 dollar bills. His reasons for having the Tucano restored to perfection, instead of a warbird are pretty compelling.

Still, there's nothing quite like a.......................

A Mustang is a Mustang. Nuff said. But there's no doubt the Tucano is my when I will the lotto airplane of choice.

Jay, add another Wow to the Cirrus admirers club.

Few pages back, I mentioned using a modified RTL1090 USB TV receiver as an ADS-B receiver.

If anyone is interested, the information on how to do this can be found here:

New toy finally arrived.

Now a Gopro Hero 3 Black edition owner.



Congrats Mark! Betcha can't own just one!!


For the moment 1 will do.

Now I've got to figure out the following:

A) How many shots I can fit onto a 32gb card over a 12hr timelapse at max resolution.

B) How to keep the camera powered for a full 12 hrs to do the timelapse - especially as my only power sources will be either 1) spare batteries or the battery back pack or 2) Airplane in-seat power supply, so may be able to trickle charge the battery.

Mark,
I would think tht if you're doing a 12 hour timelapse in an airplane, that you would be able to power down and swap out batteries without any impact on the timelapse, especially if this is at 35K feet over the Atlantic. This might be the easiest solution, assuming that you can do this without removing the GoPro from its mount and changing the framing/camera angle.

Just a thought.

I wonder how many who see Lefty's old plane in Europe have any idea about the history of that plane?

Most of the fans the WWII airplane fans know about the history of this plane but the majority of the common people don't know about Lefty's White Lightning don't know if the lightning is operational again after I saw i fly last year it was grounded due to some cracks or crack in the main wing spar or wing don't know for sure...
