We missed your work Javier!


A couple more from Barcelona last month, using Kodak Ektachrome 100G shot with a K2 or K2DMD.

Film astrophotography has been long considered dead. After looking at the images on the "astrophotography" thread running here on the forums I'd say film still outshines any Pentax DSLR for wide-field use and long exposures.


In August I exposed some Kodak Gold 100 to see how it would record nebulae.

This image was acquired via a Pentax Spotmatic with a vintage 300mm f/4 SMC Takumar wide open with 30 minutes exposure. The camera was mounted equatorially on my main telescope at Flanders Pond Observatory.

While the film did record the red and blue components of the Trifid nebulae, it does not seem to do as well as Fujicolor 100 which I tested earlier this summer.

Kodak Gold 100 still paints a nice picture, whether it be daylight or nightime.

This is Messier 8,the Lagoon Nebula in Sagittarius. Above it is the smaller,but famous Trifid Nebula.

Holy crap! Amazing photo, and certainly showing one of the advantages of film. Have you tried any Kodak Ektar 100?

Thanks, I have tried Ektar. It records fairly well, but becomes quite contrasty and with a strong cyan cast in very long exposures. I may try it again on some brighter regions of the Milky Way. It did fairly well though.

Here is Ektar on Cygnus. Click to embiggen.

Wow, incredible star pictures.... Hmmm.... Might have to try this!

Here is my latest project. Used a Halina Prefect TLR camera. This is the first shot I took with it. Not bad considering! It only has 1/30 second or bulb mode, and F8, 11 or 16. So getting the correct exposure is.... Tricky.

Ilford XP2 ISO 400.




A bit underexposed...




I've experimented and found that ramping up the contrast and sharpening a little really works well with this combo.

lots of good and interesting photos these last couple pages! I'm always inspired when I check this thread.

here's a few new ones from the ol' K1000...

Vivitar 75-205mm Zoom, Velvia 50, from the Broncos/Lions game last weekend (full frame, no crop):







also, with the same setup, barely caught this flyover, heavily cropped. not a great shot, but it's not easy to get jets in the frame! haha.



and a couple more, first one with the Vivitar 75-205mm Zoom and Provia 400X, second one with the M50 1.7 and Velvia 50, (both full frame, no crop):

Here's something a little different, trying out a pre-war Kodak Retina I Type 148 with an Anastigmat Ektar 50/3.5 lens, Gold 400 film. My first pre-war 35mm camera, I believe. Initial result is sort of low contrast, low key...



It looks sort of Pictoralist... so I figured I'd try a b&w conversion:

Where was the kerosene shot at? Lovely image, and it looks like someplace I'd like to shoot!

Thanks!

Nesster - I love the subtle color of the first image. Very, very nice!
