    Ha, well I was a little irritated by the tone of ROL there.

    I find it a little odd that people expect a method of astrophotography that has taken much work and consumed greater amounts of treasure, should be offered free. In the UK, whilst we have an historic tendency to share our ideas and not patent them even we would find it reasonable for Kurt to market his method, perhaps in Kurt's Photostar Guide.

    Here is the photo that took so much planning. I will have a writeup on my photo blog soon talking about the whole process of how it came to be.
    Pretty pleased with the 7II / 43mm combo for this shot, though I found the discrepancy between the viewfinder and the actual field of view to be rather significant, at least in my rented cameras.

    Discrepancy? I find that the viewfinder on mine is quite accurate. The 150mm and 210mm on the other hand....

    Is that Velvia?

    Provia. Velvia turns green in long exposures. I framed the image to include Mt. Muir on the right side of frame using the viewfinder. As you can see, Mt. Muir is cut in half instead. That's the discrepancy here.

    Ah you know what, I'm thinking of Ektachrome going green. The Velvia tests I did went into an extreme exaggerated magenta / red realm that was really too much.



    After a few tests like this I ruled out velvia for my purposes. Provia was the clear winner for me.

    Here's some green Ektachrome:

    Share? Wow! Not me personally, I don't give a cat's bass what you do, kurt(can't take a joke)765. I find your attitude questionable of all those who offered you unconditional responses.

    Grow a thicker skin if you're going to post sarcastic responses. You asked for it.

    Beautiful image Kurt!

    I love T64 for long exposures, the sky tends to a beautiful deep blue.
