I was standing on the farm as the 262 joined up. You guys made the last circle north of Temple turning west to south with the two P-51s on your right wing. The 262 Was below and behind. (I posted the best I could get on FB...not good enough for here!)

Steve, the newest free Nikon View NX2 and free 30 day trial of Nikon Capture NX2 can both already read D7100 raw files and output tiff files. That may take care of your moire problems.



Thanks for the tip, Erich; I'll probably do that. What's the difference between View and Capture?

Nice looking NSX, BTW!


This is the best I've done panning at 400mm and 1/160 sec. It's not really sharp, but it's the best I managed out of 45 frames taken in the pass. Excuse the crap gray skies: this is more of a test shot than a worthy contribution.

Some eagle shots from the one time I made it to Iowa this winter. Wind was out of the wrong direction so they were going away all the time. Looking at the files at 100% reminds me of why I never like to use converters. This is probably the first time I had the 1.4 on a lens in two years.

Steve, do you have the VR on normal or active?

Normal, Laura. That's right, isn't it?

Steve, I'm not a Nikon shooter, but Thom Hogan would say that you should use Active mode for anything that is moving. Take this advice for what it's worth.

Active when YOU are moving. Normal otherwise unless on a tripod then off is how I understand it.

Just another politician twisting the truth, I'm afraid.

From USA Today:
The announcement affects towers operated under contracts with FAA that have fewer than 10,000 commercial arrivals or departures and 150,000 general-aviation operations per year.

Contract towers are not staffed by FAA controllers.

Doug Church, spokesman for the National Air Traffic Controllers Association, said the FAA would have to give the union one year's notice in order to close towers staffed by the FAA.

Closing the towers is ridiculous on its own, but if they are going to close any, it seems like they would have to close the non-union ones or wait a year.

Wow, 2 Mustangs and an Me-262. That's like hitting the Super Lotto!

Steve, Capture NX2 is a photo editor that started out at NIK Software. View NX2 is more a browser and converter.

Right, the Nikon VR should be Active only if you're bumping round, in a car, plane, etc. Normal otherwise and when panning. I found on a tripod and a long lens it helps if I leave it on normal too.

Glenn and Erich, thanks for setting me straight. I should know better than to try to decipher clearly written Nikon terminology after 8pm.

Good Evening Boys and Girls,

I see our Austin Prodigy has been off making history! Congratulations Glenn, well done my friend! You can't sleep with that grin on your face tonight, you'll drool all over the place!

Zim, wish I could help. I'm still re-reading the IS/Non-IS rules!

Nighty Night Jan Arie!

Mark, Unfortunately that is a misrepresentation of the facts, what a surprise. SOmething that the lamestream media has no interest in reporting is the cost to run an NFCT v. a pork laden FAA facility. The NFCT at KTKI, with six controllers costs just a bit over 500K annually, lock stock and barrel. Addison, with an FAA facility and a similar traffic count, runs more than three times that amount. If you were a business man, or if you had half a brain, wouldn't you have privatized all the towers in the country and reduced your cash outlay by 75%? I understand the 12 month lag in the current situation, but why the heck didn't they privatized the whole mess decades ago? Of course, the simple answer is, just like congress, we have the wolves guarding the hen house. Same reason "Affordable" healthcare is great for us, but for members of congress, not so much.

Please would a "Progressive" tell me how happy they are with the healthcare act, a year before it actually takes full effect, given the "uninsurable" guaranty clause has already gone broke and been dissolved? Additionally, what we were sold as a $2,500 average per family savings has now turned into a 30 to 80 % increase in premiums, and a program that was touted to cost 900 million, now that it's been passed has been outed by the GAO as 2.3 trillion? If a conservative was running this team there would be blood knee deep in the streets, but it barely makes the back page in today's news climate. I don't get it, .....................obviously.

Thanks ya'll. I finally knocked on the right door and got a ride on the Collings B24 to shoot the fighters today between tour stops. While its nice to be in charge thats obviously not possible here but I still scored some cool shots. It was a hoot riding on the 24 by itself, much less having the fighters buzzing the window. Always impressed by tight formation flying and those guys are top notch. Tried like heck but couldnt put together a head on - guess you always have to keep a goal for next time. Might as well add a broken layer at sunset while i'm at it. Dream big right?
