You closed the other thread just as I was posting. :D

Jeff, I have a carved wood cigarette case I bought in the Phillipines in 1966. I'll try to take a shot and show it in the next day or two.

So are we automatically subscribed to this thread? I guess it doesn't matter for me now. It's with regret that I let you all know I too am moving on from the 1Ds family. I've purchased a 5DII and have my 1DsII up for sale. I made the move because I've been getting more and more into night landscapes and wanted to increase my SNR. Like the others I'll still be lurking here, and comment when approprate. All that said, I still have a few in the can and when I process something worthy from it I'll be sure to share.

Wow Jon, I sure wish I knew how to do that! My attempts at the stars have failed fairly miserably. I've bought a T-adapter and hook up my 5D2 and 1Ds2 to my dad's 8" Celestron scope, with no good result. Don't guess you'd care to share some tips would you?

Wish you great success with the change, I've gone the opposite direction...from the 5D2 to the 1Ds2 and now find it difficult to use the 5, it just feels so little!

Thanks Dale. If you click on the shot it takes you to the flickr page. Under the photo I've described the process as follows

To make this shot I took 120 shots, each one 16mm, 20 sec, f/2.8, ISO 1600. I used Deep Sky Stacker to bring out the stars, but because so much time elapsed over this period only about the center 1/2 of the stars came out. Fortunately, the area that came out included the Milky Way which I merged back into one of the original exposures.

I will say that I'm very much learning these types of shots and by no means an expert. Whether or not I need to shoot or process using 120 shots remains to be seen. Especially as I modify my gear to that which is more low light friendly. It sure is fun learning though!

Very nice, thanks Jon for the info. A good 40 minutes of shooting time alone, yep...a lot of work goes into a shot like this!

I am getting ready to attempt a full moon shot of the "supermoon" variety like some I've seen online and on the news. When I took the shot I posted of the supermoon over the hospital where my wife works, I totally forgot about zoom perspective (shot it from about 2 blocks away from the hospital at 100mm on the 70-200). So now I have charted a plan for rectifying that. On June 4th the full moon will be almost as close as the so-called "supermoon" of earlier this month, it just won't be 100% full at moonrise, not being full until 20 minutes or so before it sets at 6:25 in the morning. I found a site online that shows the location of the moon and sun for a given date and time and used this to plot a position for June 4th in an attempt to frame the atmosphere enlarged and closer than usual full moon over a domed event center we have nearby. With some luck the moon will appear in my photograph as large or nearly so as the geodesic dome. The plan is to shoot the picture from 3/4 of a mile away with my 1DsMkII and 70-200 at 200, or to shoot it from 3.8 miles away using the same camera mounted to an 8" telescope to give a lens focal length equivalent to 2032mm! :) I have yet to actually visit the further location to check for line-of-sight disturbances but all indicators show no problem so far. The 3/4 mile distance has been checked but I don't know how large the moon will appear with the 200 mm focal length. Guess I'll have to go on some luck with this one! The issue for the long shot is that the telescope aperture is fixed at f/10.

Of course, I'll post the results next month. ;)

Personally, It sound to me like you'll be better off with the telescope over the 70-200. Below is a shot I took of the supermoon which I shot with my 70-200 and a 1.4 extender. The moon doesn't look big enough IMO.

Sounds like you put a lot of planning into this next one on June 4th. One thing I've learned from some of my buddies is that careful planning is essential to these types of shots. You didn't mention the program(s) your using to plan this, but I would recommend The Photographers Ephemeris. It's a fantastic tool for shooting anything involving the angle of the sun/moon at a given time on a given day. We use it every time we are planning an excursion into the mountains. If you try it, be sure to search for and watch the two video tutorials. It's a relatively easy program to use, but not easy to figure out without some help. I look forward to your moon shots.

Nice shooting guys! ;)

Jon, sorry to hear you giving up on the 1Ds MkII but hope you'll stick around!

I'll follow Dan's lead with a bit of lead crystal stemware!

Taken with the 50L @ f/1.2...
