@Easytiger. Funny, how everything in that photo is many fold. What scanner do you use? Regards Jakob

In the Lake district in England again. Stopped at a field and set up my camera for a star trail. To the naked eye, it was pitch dark.

Pentax 645D FA 33 - 55mm at f/8 and 39mm 25 minutes

Itshimtis - do you have a feel for how long an exposure you can do on a fully-charged battery, assuming double the time for the second exposure? I know it depends on the outside temp and other factors, but just a guess (or an educated one if you have done many).

Guesswork to a point. You'll get a decent trail from anything above about 10 mins. It's -4C (28F) where I am and I am now waiting on a 35 minute exposure. I've lost a few as the second exposure wasn't completed by the time the battery was depleted. The annoying thing is that my battery indicator will often go direct from 3 to 1 or from 2 to flashing. My 645D doesn't allow me to not do the dark frame even if I select it in the menu. I'd prefer not to do the dark shot there and then but do it later after recharging the battery

One way is to go out with a few batteries and take a few 10 minute exposures and blending them.

My latest has over 10 minutes still to go and it is on 2 bars. I actually had a shooting star, but I suspect it was out of frame and probably wouldn't show anyway.

OK thanks, that helps. I probably will need an AC power pack since I like much longer exposures. Stacking would be an option if you could actually shut off the dark frame exposure, but with it on there will be an equal amount of blank space in the trail for each exposure. I've got a power pack I can plug into and it will run a camera all night, but it weights 15 pounds and is not much fun to pack into the woods very far if needed! I'm new to 645D (in fact don't have one in hand yet), and am trying to figure out how well it will do at night - far better than my Phase One backs I'm sure...

A Canoscan9000F. Not great, but good enough for the price.

Here's the next one. The trees are lit with a torch for 10 minutes of a 35 minute exposure at 33mm and f/8

The weather was pretty good today and I found myself in one of my favourite places, Loughrigg tarn

Pentax 645D FA 120 f/4 at f/16




I waited as the sun set and this shot was taken just over an hour after sunset, it's amazing how much light remains in the sky so long after sun set

Pentax 645D FA 33-55 at f/16 and 33mm 16 minutes ISO 100

On my way home on the train, after a few days in the Lake District. While waiting on the platform at Oxenholme, I had a play with my camera. This shot may be total rubbish, but I quite like the back to front message. I converted to black and white in Silver efex Pro 2 adjusting contrast and using a Ilford Pan F 50 profile

Pentax 645D FA 120 Macro at f/4 1/30 (EV -1) ISO 1000




yesterday was a pretty murky day so didn't get very far but took a few photos

This is the stepping stones guest house by the stepping stones on the River Rothay

Pentax 645D FA 33-55 at 33mm f/22 5 seconds exposure converted in Silver Efex
