Description
Shot using the main optics of the C-8 (2000mm f10) This was my first attemp at using a digital camera. AS an SLR, focusing was difficult, so the pic is a bit soft. The exposure was an unguided 30 seconds in mildy windy conditions, but very clear air. Background light pollution is high as Kennedy Airport is in the general direction (northeast) four miles from my location.
