Can't see "blue stars"


Recommended Posts

Hi friends

In my institute a teacher explain how to know if a remote works, remotes can be watched with a cam like your phone's if going well you see a blue light if not there's a problem......

In the night if you shot a photo to the sky may be blue points, I believe they are black stars maybe also called black holes

With my ilce alpha 7 I can't see both

There's any conf?

Could be any solution to view this invisible for humans light specter with the cam?

You want to see black holes by photographing the nights sky with your A7? You do realize that only this year for the very first time in history a black hole was 'photographed' using a virtual Earth-size telescope, after 60 institutions collaborated and did massive data-processing on readings by eight radio telescopes which were synchronized by atomic clocks?

Please keep us posted when you succeed. You might well win a Nobel prize.

Now I'm confused. Not about black holes: I don't know enough about black holes to get confused! But about remotes, UV, and cameras.

I have known for a long time that remote controls (of the UV kind) can be tested (at least for life: not for correct signals, of course) with a phone camera, because it sees the UV light that our eyes do not.

Didn't I hear that our mirrorless cameras have a UV filter in front of the lens? But my a6500 can see the purple glow from my Aircon remote control. Oh, and it's got a dirty-finger protector (other known as a UV filter) on the lens too.

Please unconfuse me!

I'm sure if you take a photo of sky in dark night with 600-1000mm lenses, when viewing the photo with computer and uses pc zoom you can see blue points wetween other stars. And them the blue points are in same point in other photos of same zone and them have the blue color of remotes, 

Maybe them aren't black hol but theme are UV light emitting stars cause without camera you can't see the same point

    • Hello, I wanted to share the set up for tracked panoramas that I am currently using, wich is based on the use of two two way head from Sunway: the DT-03 and the DT-03R. Both heads are very steady. They are made up of two parts: 1) a 360º graduated rotating/panoramic base with a bidirectional tilt central body (adjustable with two locking levers), and 2) an upper part that, in the case of the DT-03, it is a clamp quick release plate and, in the case of the DT-03, it is a graduated panoramic screw-on rotating head, both compatible with the Arca Swiss system. These upper parts are removable and, therefore, can be replaced by other standard rotating jaws type IRC-64, or by other indexed ones. As I said, I use one of them, the DT-03, as an equatorial wedge, placed directly on the tripod or on a leveling base. Its quick release head with clamp allows me to quickly place the tracker on top and be able to align easily. To align it, I loosen one of the central pins of the kneecap a little, and leave the other loose. This way I can safely achieve the degree of inclination of the tracker that I want. That, combined with the 360º rotating base that the head has, is an excellent option for precise and fast alignment. Then I place the DT-03R on top of the tracker, and use it as a panoramic flat base on which I mount an L-plate combined with a rotating clamp. On these last accessories I place the camera, ready to shoot, being able to move it both in the horizontal and vertical axis. The DT-03R screwed to the tracker allows me to have a solid flat and rotating base on which to pan without losing horizontality and, at the same time, I can compensate for the rotation of the tracker thanks to its base, which also rotates 360º. So the set up is as follows: Both This is what I use: Tripod Leveling base (optional) Sunway DT-03 two way head as a wedge Star tracker from Move Shoot Move Nomad Sunway DT-03R as a leveled base L bracket 360º rotatory arca swiss head Here I share some photos of the set up; I hope it helps:     View: original size View: original size View: original size You can find them in the Sunwayphoto website.

    • Hi, Last year I switched from Nikon to Sony (A7Cm2) and this situation surprised me in an unpleasant way. When I travel, I record rather short 8-30 seconds clips, a lot of such clips. And found that these files are rather big because of rounded up to the nearest ~32MB. Different SD cards (64GB) fill up very quickly because of that behavior. Sample sizes for different durations of those clips, for example I have 700 clips with these "distinctive" sizes +/-, nothing in between 33,592,255 67,149,921 100,706,705 134,367,160 167,821,451 201,378,823 234,936,491 268,594,590 302,050,059 335,709,042 ... and so on +/-1000 for the smaller files up to +/-100,000 for the bigger ones rounded up to the nearest ~32MB  Different 64GB cards were formatted inside the camera with exFAT (allocation unit size is 128KB) Why is that? Is there some setting for that?  -- Piotr
    • In short: AF micro adjustment isn't needed in mirrorless cameras, so the option is irrelevant. In DSLRs, the focus module is in a different light path than the photosensitive plane. Minuscule differences in the lengths of these paths can be compensated for with AF Micro adjustment. In mirrorless cameras, the photosensitive plane also contains the focus points. So whenever the camera detects proper focus acquisition, the focus is also exactly on the photosensitive plane. That is, until you use an LA-EA4 adapter to mount your 500mm f/4 onto your A1, which uses its own AF module instead of the cameras AF system. I would strongly advise against going this route: you'll have a state of the art camera with an insanely good AF system, and then you dismiss it 'in favour of' a very dated and compromised AF mechanism. Better try the LA-EA5 if you really want to keep using your old lens.   Edit: apparently autofocus doesn't even work with the LA-EA4 on the A1. https://support.d-imaging.sony.co.jp/www/cscs/accessories/compatibility.php?area=gb&lang=en&mdl=ILCE-1&cat=7
