I'm sure they do, come back when its the 11-24.. :D

Just look at it, to cover the 11mm the filter has to be behind the front of the element or huge (way bigger than 150mm) or curved.

Just moved from Ashburton to Whangaparaoa on the North Island. First time living by the ocean. I miss the mountains already, but it is nice to walk only a few minutes to this view:

Hah, it is always fun spelling it out for our friends and family in the US.

Thanks. Really lucky in that the little beach down the street has tons of very cool rock formations. Will have to slowly figure out the best times, angles, and perspectives to shoot each one of them!

Beautiful photograph. I love the interesting rock formations. Nice how they are repetative like tiles.

Rob - nice to see your photos engaging people. The photo posted last night in your FB stream last night with the Aurora over the port hills made it way onto my facebook feed here in the US....

I never knew that sort of shot could be captured in chch - always figured it's be too much light pollution.

(link to robs FB https://www.facebook.c​om/RobDickinsonPhotogr​aphy (external link)).

What sort of process do you do to stack, yet get the star field crisp, and the foreground sharp?

Cheers Daniel, that one seems to have hit a nice spot with people! The light pollution is a pain but I picked a spot so I could frame the interesting bits away from that. It kind of works as a frame for the MW/aurora.

Crazy it has got onto peoples feeds in US! That doesnt happen too often.

I didnt do any stacking and the absolute foreground is oof, some of it is cropped ( image is a bit bigger than published). The rest really isnt of so much interest as the mid/background anyhow. The spot I was shooting from was a little precarious (big drops) and it was quite gusty with wind. So much so I held onto the tripod to keep it down for the whole (56 frame) process...

No stacking as such just stitching.

I guess we look at photos these days and don't take them at face value.
