Well, after many years in the hobby, I have finally quit and sold it all off.

Lot's of factors.

Mainly it's a solitude hobby that requires just too much time. Too often I'm either rushed or feel rushed(even when I'm not rushed) when I'm out. It's hard to get any joy out of it under those conditions.

It's not only with the picture taking end of it but all of the editing that is involved. I can go out in the woods and it's nearly an all day event. Then I get home and there's nearly the same amount of time going through the pictures and editing the keepers.

It's just not feasible with a young family.

I also get hung up on picture IQ. I hit my max on what I can shell out $$$ for this hobby but I want better gear still. Better equipment at this stage means $7K - $11K superzooms, $6K bodies and tripods not much cheaper. That's not happening.

In short, I've lost the joy shooting. I needed a break and the only way for me to take a break was selling my gear.

I get that. One of the reasons I like astrophotography is that it is at night. I can get it done after the kiddos go to bed; a great benefit because I don't have to rely on my family schedule to get out. Which frankly is always FULL. It does take all night in general for one shot's data capture though...and is dependent on clear weather and no moon. Oh you mentioned processing. Oh boy is that a ton of hours and you redo and redo. I have an image I posted on the prior page, 20 iterations later I have:



...still not satisfied with it. Looks posterized. My equipment is also pathetic in terms of what other people have; I just have a cheap mount, DSLR, and lenses. A person I asked had $45k invested. Sheesh. But I don't have the spare money to invest.

But I do it anyway because they're MY freaking photons. And it's fun to get out in the sky all alone, watching the stars go by. I've always been sort of a loner even though I have a wife and family.

I had a point here somewhere. I think if you ditch your equipment you'll miss it. Yeah, put it down for a while, it won't go away or expire. I'm using lenses I got 10-15 years ago and hadn't shot much in the intervening years when I had no direction. It's fine. Even your DSLR won't get WORSE, just in comparison to new technology.

Thanks! The basics are a Canon 70D, 70-200mm lens, and telescope tracking mount. Details are in this post: http://www.rage3d.com/board/showpost...ostcount=12747

Basically, the telescope mount tracked the earth's rotation while I focused on the Orion "belt and sword" area and took 4.5 hours worth of photos in 2 minute chunks. Then stacked them to improve signal to noise ratio and processed the living daylights out of it to get as much detail as possible. The prior post I had another version...then as you can see, I have another here. I may reprocess again sometime to try to reduce the posterization from the noise reduction here. Who knows.

Ditto. Given your drive for image quality, even a great point and shoot will leave you wanting.

Anyway, my job took me to Santa Barbara on Friday. It was on a private jet (not luxury, experimental), so I was able to roam about taking pictures. I became fascinated especially with the otherworldly landscapes around Arizona, New Mexico from 41000 ft.






Grand Canyon:

...and as we got into Santa Barbara...

I know the cons and pros.

It would be primary a tool to capture moments of my kids. The 4K video and the ability to pull semi-quality stills from that video is interesting.

It's probably the best do-all-in-one camera on the market.

Astrophoto I took a couple nights ago.



This bright and colorful area of the sky is called the "Rho Ophiuchi cloud complex". It's a mix of emission, reflection, and dark nebula. Rho Ophiuchi is basically the 3 stars in the left side blue reflection nebula. Antares, the heart of Scorpio, is the reddish-yellow supergiant in the lower right. M4, a nice globular cluster with hundreds of thousands of stars, is in the upper right. The red areas are emission nebula, where ultraviolet light stimulates mainly hydrogen alpha emissions in the red spectrum. Blue is from the brighter blue stars...yellow reflections off of dust around Antares. The dark areas are dust lanes back lit from the stars and reflection nebula.

To find this, watch for Mars to rise in the southeast a little after midnight. It's really bright and reddish. Look slightly below and to the right and you will see a dimmer but still bright red-yellow star, Antares. I exposed for a cumulative 75 minutes with a 200 mm lens on a Canon 70D.

The Nikon D500 is looking REAL nice.

DX with near FX IQ quality.

Feature wise just packed.

Must resist...

I did not...

Was waiting for so long to replace my trusty D300...

The reviews are amazing however... Almost D5 low light performance, bettet
dynamic range than D4 and D5, almost D800. 10FPS and AF that focuses on
subjects the shooter actually does not even see...

This is the first time I pre-bought a camera and it seems I will not be disappointed

So D5 AF, almost D800 dynamic range, almost D5 low light, 10 FPS, touch screen, 4K video though I will rarely use it.

NICE!

Yeah, I wish they'd offer non-video bodies at a reduced cost. Nikon is offering the D5 in two different versions with the memory configs. I see no difference with a video option. I never use the video feature either. I personally just use my cellphone or standalone recorder.

Do you have it yet?

It should come in this week...

Already have a shoot lined up for next Saturday.
Of course, I will use my trusty D700 if it is delayed

these pics make the terrain look less than it was... especially the first since that was a pretty good downhill slope but i was pointing the camera uphill which made it seem flatter and the grass and angle hide the deep ruts and washout

Doesn't compare to the fancy shots in here, but saw this moon a week or so ago and put my camera on the tripod.
