I have always liked B&W images such as the second image for the feeling they invoke. I can almost feel the cool dampness.

it was a cold and cool day but with harsh sunlight.... these days I leave my K5 or K-01 at home with the hard light between 12 and 4, but not the Q!

Q7 and Tamron 70-200. I was hoping for clear conditions but I still like how this turned out.

Haven't been to Utrecht for twenty years, but I had a terrific time when I was there. Thanks for the photos!

I like the second shot. It just portrays that feeling of below 0.

100/2.8 WR around F5.6. Got some noise from aggressive processing stretching all the whites.I probably should have made those adjustments with a radial filter just where I wanted it.

Hi all, a new user here.

I've shot this with Q7 on my kid's small telescope, Orion Spaceprobe 3, at prime focus. Sorry for the lousy color, it's not the telescope, it was very cloudy outside.
The focal length is 700mm, giving a 35mm equivalent of 3290mm (!!!). It's a bit too long and inflexible to be useful for anything except astrophotography for me, but it's cloudy and windy and no possibility of clear night at the moment, so I went to the back yard and took pictures of random birds just for fun.

That dove was perching on the electricity line that was swinging back and forth due to wind. All I could do was to set some focus, shoot as many as possible, and discard most. As you can see, f9.3 wide open with 700mm focal length will give you thin DOF when focused on "close" objects like this, and I got only two shots with reasonable focus on the head. No PP, just out of camera jpg.


The thing about small Newtonian telescopes with the sensor set at the primary focal plane is that there is zero chromatic aberration because there's no lens in the optical path, and that it's cheap. I bought this telescope for one of my kids at around 100USD maybe 5 years ago, but it sells at 89USD shipped right now.

However, another thing about Newtonians is that they're picky about cameras. Focal plane of Newtonian tele is close to the telescope body by design. Depending on the flange back length, your sensor might not be able to be set at the focal plane as the body would interfere with the focuser tube, and that's the case for DSLRs for tiny Newtonian telescopes like this one. With a very short flange back length of Q system this is less of a problem (but it could still be the problem). In my case, though I was able to focus on this bird that was maybe 15 or 20 yards (that's about 15 to 20m for metric people) away from me, I have to wait for a nice clear night sky to see if I can focus at infinity, i.e. stars.

Below is a cell phone picture showing Q7 on the telescope, and the dove on the line. There's another picture on my album that shows the telescope better if you are interested.

That looks familiar. Been there done that more than a few times. But where are the pancakes?
