Q7 Macros

Recently acquired an original K-Q-Adapter and of course had to try it.

First with a FA50/1.4 at approx. f2.4 - hand held:


Then with a Tamron 90mm Macro at f8 - tripod used:




The last one was a 5 second exposure - the Q7 / Tamron combo really is well balanced on the K-Q-Adapter when used with the tripod foot. A real breeze to setup and shoot with.

I swung by the West Mooring Basin Wednesday afternoon. This little camera does good color and detail, it punches well above it's weight, especially in good light.

The town I live in, Astoria, has a lot of working fishermen. This, along with the other local trade of lumbering, is a terribly dangerous way to earn a living. There are lots of fishing boats around here and they all have to cross the Columbia Bar to get to open water. Check out the Columbia Bar on YouTube. This area is known as the Graveyard of the Pacific for good reason. The US Coast Guard has its rescue training school across the river and other countries all over the world send their folks here to learn how to rescue in the most terrible conditions to be found. And that Columbia Bar can change from placid to horrendous in a matter of minutes. You can be damned sure I am not interested in going out there.





We love the pilots who bring the ships across the bar, fair weather or foul. The bar pilots get the ships to Astoria where the river pilot takes over from Astoria to Idaho if be needs be. And we really love "The Coasties" who will come out and save your ass when you are clawing your way off the lee shore and every other rational person is at home by the fire. The fishing boats do not cross the bar with a pilot.

Will he ever stop? You know, I've asked myself the same question. This is Seaside beach at the north end of town with the tide out and the sun directly ahead.

Hi boojum, I live more than 300 miles upstream, I never knew that the Columbia Bar was such a dangerous place!

Q7 and 480mm f/6 telescope. This is basically the same shot I have posted to another thread (Crop Factor - PentaxForums.com) but after adjusting sharpness.


Moon, 2020 May 31 by k kwb, on Flickr

The phase of the moon is almost the same as my previous moon shot (Let's share shots with Q! - Page 425 - PentaxForums.com) but this time it's much sharper. The main difference I think is that after taking the previous shot on a teeny travel tripod I retrieved a sturdier tripod from my office.

Nice one. I have to hook up the Tamron 500mm mirror to the Q-S1, nail it to a tripod, and try my luck with some moon shots. Maybe even Venus if it shows up off my back porch.

Riding around back in the farmland around here just seeing what there was. Ran across an original fence, a couple of nice old cars and a tree in sweet bloom. Here they are,

Yep, people out in the country sometimes do weird (or at least different) stuff with no zoning boards, Home Owner's Association, or other regulators around to try to standardize them, regulate them, and homogenize them.

Genuine Q on Celestron Astromaster - 70 (900 mm) - stacked from 3 images, cropped. I'm sure much better results are possible with this setup.
