69% Waxing Gibbous last night. Right now it looks like the 26th will be clear here so I can photograph the "pink moon" (fingers crossed but I realized I just jinxed myself)

D850, Celestron Nexstar 8E (2032mm f/10 catadioptric) 

1/200 sec @ f/10 ISO 200)

#68701 My first and still my favorite Nikon film camera

Posted by Nikonsince1972 on 10 July 2020 - 04:13 PM

I still use my F2A, F3HP, F4E, FE-2 and Nikkormat FT2 but my 1969 FTN is still my favorite. I love to take it out and have people ask me how many MP it has.  :lol:

#68518 What a terrific piece of gear!

Posted by Nikonsince1972 on 27 June 2020 - 10:01 AM

The best $30 investment in camera gear ever. The rig as pictured with 600mm f/4 ED-IF AIS Nikkor, D850 with grip, gimbal head and carbon fiber tripod tips the scales at about 25 pounds. This is my go-to rig for nature photography and although the weight does not really bother me the sharp edges on the tripod and even the legs dig into my shoulder when I carry it for long distances and it gets rather uncomfortable. This pad makes carrying it a pleasure!
