    MIke,

    I noticed you have a few picts posted on the lick observatory flickr page ( at least I assume its you). Is that you? I work there as a lead staff member during the summer public viewing events. The last 2 years we have offered 2 nights for photo events where we allow 20-30 photographers to come up to the mountain and kinda take over. have you ever been to one? if its something you are interested in, keep an eye on the public viewing page of the lick website.

    anyway, if you interested, let me know. I hope this message is not out of place, just nice to see someone who appreciates astronomy and telescopes and the like as optical as well as photography subjects. if you want more access, just volunteer to work 2 nights min in a season and you get to hang around after the public leaves and use the scopes for our own use. we even get to hook up our cameras to the 40 inch scope and use that as a lens!

    Hi Mike! Excellent Work! Have you any updates on your 150~450mm review? I use the K3ii as well and trying to gather info. Your thoughts are appreciated. Btw, it’s -22f here in Wis, so no urgency. :-). Thanks! .....jeff

    Hi Mike

    Your photos are awesome and so inspirational. Every time I come across them I want to go out and take photos!

    I had a few questions regarding some lens choices, but I sent it as a PM because it's super long and I didn't want your feed to just be a wall of text.

    Thanks.

    Earl

    Hi Mike,

    I have been appreciating your pictures and comments on the various threads since joining PF
    about a year ago. I was hoping you could elaborate on something you posted recently to a discussion of the merits of the 15mm ltd.

    Specifically - what is it that you prefer about the 21mm ltd compared to the 15mm? I am trying to decide between the two, and I think that the 21 fov fits my needs better. The only thing holding me back is the constant and consistent raves about the 15.

    Thanks,

    Yonatan (yorik)

    Hey Mike - I'm from the Bay area as well, but fairly new here. How do you reach the spot you took the picture of from under the bay bridge from your new years shot with the FA31 ltd? Great picture!
