Does anyone out there have one? If so, what do you think about it in particular for medium format photography.

TIA,

CN-212

Posted By Frank Castagna

Does anyone know where an adapter can be found to attach standard SCT parts to the rear of the CN-212 or what the diameter and thread is so I can have one custom made?

Thanks,
Frank C.

Lunar Eclipse

The sky conditions were not great but not to bad from New Orleans.

A great year at the DSRSG

Posted By Frank Castagna

This year was a great year at the Deep South Regional Star Gaze Party at Percy Quin State Park. The weather cooperated very nicely and the turn out of astronomers was very good.

First image Jupiter.....finally

Posted By Frank Castagna

I bought an 840 Phillips cam over a year ago and finally got off my kester and got around to using it for the first time. Can't wait for a better night and a little more practice.

What is the best 120 fomat film currently availabl

Posted By Frank Castagna

I haven't done any photography for a couple of years and want to get back into it. I use a Pentax 67on my scopes. I have only one roll of Kodak E200 left and wanted to buy some more only to find that it is no longer produced.
So what is my next best alternative? Or does anyone know of a source E200 that is still available. I was thinking of trying the Kodak EKTACHROME 200 version.

Thanks for any info.

Super Moon

Posted By Frank Castagna

Just wanted to try out my new camera and my new eye to see how my focus was. Photo was a single shot taken with a Canon 5D and a William Optics 80mm f/6. ISO @640 1/8000 sec. Next time I will lower the ISO for better resolution.
