Who processes the film? It could be an agitation issue.

I would try a polarizer filter. They can sure crank up the colour. Tips on pictures of rainbows? - PentaxForums.com

I went on the Wahine when we moved from Wanganui to Dunedin in 1968. As we never had a car, and Dad worked for the Railways, Lyttelton was a good place to start for the train trip south. From memory, it was something like a 12 hour sail. Things went south after the Wahine went down.

I just landed a Rokinon 135mm f/2.0, beast that it is. It weighs a ton and am waiting for some mounting rings and bracket to show up from France. Then it all goes on my iOptron StarGuider mount. This has been a work in progress for a while.

There appears to be some kaka in the Wairarapa.

Also there are a few kakariki that hang out in the gum trees overlooking the Otaki Golf Course.

We have some here in Te Kuiti though it has been some months since I have seen any.

I had a delivery last week of 2 jars of Jenny's Kitchen Tamarind Chutney, extra hot. They are classed as essential.

All good. :lol:

Cheers. I have been in self isolation since I retired so no big deal there. Might do some Astro while I wait things out. Hopefully this situation will slow Musk's attempts to fill near Earth orbits with more junk.

My wife is able to work from home. Today, of all days, her work lappy decided to suck the kumara.


Take care all.

I have the original: the Tamron 90mm f/2.5 although it is only 1:2. To get 1:1 the 2x teleconverter is required. I bought both nearly 40 years ago and have never been tempted to dispose of them.

pentax ist D won't power on

Years ago I dropped my ist DS and it refused to start. I removed the batteries for a day, reinserted them, and the camera fired up. I gave said camera to a friend a while back and he recently informed me that the camera no longer powers up on batteries. However the AC power pack works fine and my chum has made a new battery pack with an external jack plug for powering the camera in the field. The problem with this particular camera is the circuitry regarding DC input has failed but the external power input is fine.

Video of all the entries for the 2019 NZ Astrophotography Competition. Most of the images can be done with bog standard photography kit.

Enjoy. :)

Enjoy. The e- book is good value. I found the Pentax manual is a tough read.

I have just moved up the NI from Levin to Te Kuiti. It took Trustpower over a week to hook up the internet.
