A simple way to come with hardship.

my mother is in the hospital and not doing well.  She is dying, it is just a long process with all her complications.  Her Hospital room has a great view of the mountains here in Provo Utah.  So i figured since i am sitting and watching her.  I could play with the interval timer in my D7000.  The sunrise was beautiful the day before.  I might as well capture it.   Here is my results of the time lapse from the seventh floor of the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in Provo Utah.

The moon is not made of cheese

Last night right when the store was about to close  Steve set up the Nikon 500mm f4. He then added the 1.7 teleconverter to it.  That was equal to a 850mm lens. Now i have a crop sensor, so all you geeks that want to play that game, it was as if i was shooting with a 1275mm lens. As if the lens magically grows, like when Pinocchio   lies and his nose grows.

I have take several pictures of he moon in the past, and i fee that my exposure i dead on but my focal length was always too short.  For the first time I feel that  finally got it.

Here is my exposure:
0471-ISO 100, SS 1/125, f16
0472-ISO 100, SS 1/200, f16
0473-ISO 100, SS 1/400, f16
0474-ISO 100, SS 1/800, f16
0475-ISO 100, SS 1/1600, f16
0476-ISO 100, SS 1/3200, f16
0477-ISO 100, SS 1/6400, f16

I made the different exposures so I coudl do some HDR later.   I imagine that i will post them here as well.
