    Doha Waterfront

    I had an extended stopover of 16 hours on my way from Seoul to the UK so utilised it by spending some time in the city. Scouted around a bit ready for twilight, was feeling poorly due to a heavy cold, so didn't see as much as I would have liked.

    The Crescent Nebula in Cygnus

    Hi, many forums and the "pros" once were certain that the star eater issue makes the Sony A7 Series unusable for astrophotography but I always had good results with my Sony A7rII. So I recently went ahead and had it astromodified. The thick IR-Block Filterglas was replaced with a thin Baader substitute that lets IR Light down to the h-alpha line and the sII line through to the sensor with high transmission. The results can be seen in detail on my google drive link here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1SrdJ7tJbEUwN5KcbXsfpKaesq8KltzmY/view?usp=sharing I could write a lot of things that make the A7rII not the perfect camera for astro but suffice to say, it is still bloody capable. Cheers and CS, Ben - Instagram - AstroBin Technical stuff: Acquisition: Imaging telescope or lens : Meade SN-8 Imaging camera : Sony a7rII astro modified Focal reducer : TeleVue ParaCorr PLU1106 Filter : STC Cyclops Optics STC Astro Duo-Narrowband Filter Dates : May 28, 2020 Frames : STC Cyclops Optics STC Astro Duo-Narrowband Filter : 39x300" ISO640 Integration : 3.2 hours Darks : ~50 Flats : ~50 Avg. Moon age : 5.67 days Avg. Moon phase : 32.16% Bortle Dark-Sky Scale : 8.00 Processing was done with Adobe Lightroom Classic CC, Aries Productions Astro Pixel Processor APP and Adobe Photoship CC 2018. Stacked with sigma kappa clipping 3/1. Light pollution could not be removed automatically in A.P.P. and had to be done manually in Lightroom with local adjustments and a lot of fiddling. Both images have reduced star sizes with a minimum filter applied to masked stars. The masked stars color’s were also tweaked in order to bring them close to the feel of a normal broadband rgb distribution with colors between either aqua and blue or yellow and orange. I did however not manage to create a mask that includes the faintest and smallest of stars. If you look closely you see how the star colors are a little off, the smaller the stars get

    In addition to the photographic merit, of course: as a biker, I like the way how this bird is doing a curved flight, yet keeping his head perfectly aligned with the horizon. Pretty much like motorcyclists do it, too. Image source: http://www.ridesmart.info/img/blogs/leaning diagram.jpg

    I can see you...

    Hi from South Africa. I am a wildlife and surfing photographer, based in the coastal town of Ballito. (Upper east coast of South Africa). My wife and I were both formerly Canon shooters for 19 years, but we switched to Sony equipment in 2017. My wife specialises in video ( Sony HXR-NX 80), and up to now I have specialised in stills, but that is now changing with the delivery of my SonyA7Siii today! Woopwoopwoop!.😝 In 2017 the Sony A9i just blew me away with it's focus acquisition/tracking, and it's general performance, including its lightness, and comparative cost against my old Canon kit (1DX MKii / 5D MKiv / 7D MKii, and 200mm-400mm f4, and other white lenses) It was Sony vs Canon , and the performance of the Sony A9i / Sony 70mm-200mm f2.8 GM +2xTC just blew me away. I confirmed totally, that it was a major inflection point in the world of modern photography.😲 The big test came on the Zambezi River (Namibian side), documenting the 2017 breeding season of the erratic-flying Carmine Bee-eaters. On our return to SA, I immediately sent all my Canon equipment to our main photographic dealer, with whom we have dealt for many years, and I replaced all my Canon gear with a second A9i body, 100mm-400mm GM , 24mm-70mm f2.8 GM,... But since those days, I have grown incrementally with all the Full Frame Alpha bodies to my present A9ii, A7Riv and, as from today, the A7Siii. I have just traded in my magnificent Sony 400mm f2.8 GM . *I have never been a great fan of long primes, and prefer the versatility of decent long zooms as they provide me with far more versatility for my kind of work, which is in the wilderness areas of sub-Saharan Africa, where we don't know what to expect around the next bush. 😉 My "go-to" rigs are 100mm-400mm GM +1.4xTC (Always), 200mm-600mm G, on a Gimpro Gear - double Pano Head (One for stills, and one for video) , on a Monopod, and next to me, for wider shots, either the16mm-35mm f2.8 GM / 24mm-70mm f2.8 GM / 70mm-200mm f2.8 GM. This is my first post on this forum Sony A7Riv / Sony 400mm f2.8 + 2x TC Location: Okavango Delta (Botswana)

    After being cooped up all winter with nasty weather and Covid 19 shutdown in New York, it felt really good to get out hiking and taking photos. This was my first photo of the season. I didn't expect to take any photos so I left the A7RIV home and just took the A6500. The swan was on the far side of the pond.

    Common buzzard

    No, I've put me that perch. I've been studying those couple of buzzard for several years. For photographing them I build a photographic blind about 10 meters from the perch under a tree. Generally you have to wait at least some hours before they arrive, but often they don't come as well.
