    Hello All,

    I'm Zach and as you may have guessed I'm in Israel. I work in Jerusalem and live a bit out of town. My primary interest is in doing astrophotography with film. To that end I have a Rolleiflex (80mm F2.8) and a Pentax K-1000 with a few lenses. I am also looking to build a large format Astrograph, which will be a custom camera featuring a large format lens (FL -- TBD) with fixed focus at infinity. I also am looking to get a telescope on a german equitorial mount to use as a guide scope so I can do long exposures.

    However I am also using my cameras for some terestial work,

    So far my favorite film is Fuji Provia 400 in both the 35mm and 120 format. I expect I will use Provia 100 in sheet film.

    Nice to have you on board. Where outside of Jerusalem do you live? My favorite black and white photos were taken in the old city. I will post some this week.

    Welcome to a great place--APUG!

    Sounds like you have quite a project set out for yourself.

    I live 1-1/2 hours directly east of San Francisco.

    Greetings this evening from NYC after this morning in Copake and last Wednesday in Tucson.

    Now totally confused as to time zone and latitude - not to mention this crazy warm weather. 71F in NYC yesterday! :surprised:

    Hello Zach - sounds like you will be busy for a while with your photographic creations. Good luck with them, and welcome aboard APUG.
