Wild star tails - how long was the exposure?

Thanks dj - you get excellent results from the Foma 400. Good shooting.

This one doesn't quite work - it was foggy and rainy, very flat light, but damnit I was going to take pictures to finish the roll. MX, M 50/1.7, Foma 200, D-76

I'm not exactly sure because I took a bunch of them and i didn't write down any of the exposures or anything. This was the only one that turned out well. I think this one was for about 3-5 minutes.

I really need to do some catching up here.
Nightfly, that's a nice shot. I also had a look at your Flickr page, love your astro and night photos. Great stuff.

Jussi - looks OK to me. I like the tones and the fog.

Recently I tried out pushing some Tri-X to 1600 and developing in Ilford ID-11 at 1+1.
Unfortunately most of the roll was ruined due to (I think) a light leak in my (crappy) plastic dev tank. >

MX, A-50/1.2, Tri-X @ 1600

Nice shot. There seems much less grain than I would expect for that film/speed/developer combo.

I was testing out another new to me ME SUPER with the SMC-M50F/1.4 wide open, using fuji Superia 200.....I had doubts about the meter, but seemed ok. This lens is really hard to shoot wide open hand held at 1/60

Thanks.
I was quite surprised by the low grain in this one too. Not too sure why, this shot turned out better than the rest of the roll. I think maybe I gave it more exposure than some of the other shots.

Boris in Zagreb on 21.07.2010. great band from Japan, great show. sadly, this development was with last drops of Rodinal I had in my stash.

shot with Pentax MZ-S, SMC-M 50/1.4, Neopan400@3200, Rodinal 1+25, Canon 8400F scan












just a quick question guys and gals: is R09 any good? can it substitute the "real thing"?
