We're photographing it. We'll have a 5 foot reflector telescope with an EOS EF T-mount adapter and I own a 400mm f/2.8 IS II that I'll put up on the gimbal.

We're going to Papago Park to shoot it.

Really. I have had enough of that from growing up in Portland Or and then Spokane Wa.

I moved here for the sun and mother nature is not being nice. Its just like 2005 wet wet wet. We should have clear skys 335 days a year and they should schedule around solar events.

Bah.... rant over.

QUOTED IMAGE

Wait, you are saying this was shot with a 15mm lens on a full frame sensor body . . .

I have a 16mm lens on a full frame sensor body and the level of distortion is not anything close to the image shown above.

Something just doesn't add up here.

That's because the 15mm I have is a fisheye.

That's because you own a rectilinear lens design, and he shot that picture with a curvilinear lens design.

Did you know there's also something out there called a Tilt-Shift? You can move the front element up, down, left, and right!

Thanks for the science lesson Bill Nye the "science guy."

My experience with large format cameras allows me to understand the concept of adjusting BOTH the lens plane and film plane independent of each other allowing a photographer to effectively "shoot around corners" however the photographer would have to focus the image upside down and backwards on the ground glass of the camera . . .

So, no I seriously doubt you could come up with anything that would cause my head to explode, other than actual explosives.

Hey so...just wondering but is anyone looking to get rid of some old equipment like hotshoe flashes for instance? Like are you looking to say donate some gear to a high school in need? You know if any of you have a need like that my students would be greatly appreciated. Just saying. We use canon gear but I can make do with flashes of any kind.

Tell your kids to each order one of these:

http://www.amazon.com …676&sr=8-1&keywords=Tt560 (external link)

They're less than $40 and then they'll have a slave-capable 270-90 degree swivel head flash that has a wide angle diffuser and catchlight bounce card. It's not 38 GN like the description claims, but it is awesome for what each kid will spend on it.

It's fully manual too, so it'll teach them the proper way to balance strobe light with ambient using a light meter. A skill that is useful to everyone working in studio or on location. Making someone think about light without ETTL will make them much better photographers, the same way working with primes instead of zooms helps with composition, and working in manual instead of program/auto helps with understanding exposure.
