Date/Time of photoAugust 4, 2008 22:58 UT
EquipmentCanon EOS 400D with 18-55mm Zoom. 800 ASA, manually guided for 4 minutes with my vintage 910mm f/15 refractor which I revived espescially for purposes like this. So after 32 years of hyber- nation my beloved "firstscope" is back in business with tech- nology mounted to its counterweight port that no one of us would even have dreamed of 32 years ago!
DescriptionA clear, dark countryside near Bad Tölz, about 50 km south
of Munich Germany, offered this scene, which I captured with
the above equipment. With the help of a little photo-flash
I carefully illuminated the foreground.
