    Fun at Palomar - A weekend to remember

    A thread for everyone's images from the Mt. Palomar camping trip. We all had a blast and thanks again to Ty for the quick informal workshop. Still learned a bunch in 20 mins.

    Nice shots you all. I'm so upset I missed out. Oh Well, perhaps next time or I just have to bite the bullet and go out alone like a dog. haha.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Yes, on the first one my battery died after two 9-minute exposures. ISO800 and f/6.3. The second shot was five 6-minute exposures at ISO400 and f/6.3. All at 10mm.

    I should have @ least tried some star trails. Good job facing the North Star!

    Nope, smooth as a baby's booty at the moment.

    I heard most of what Bob was talking about. Randy and I managed to drag our lethargic selves up all those stairs and listen to him.

    Muahaha...Marshall...got any hair left on your arms? Dude, you missed out on the lecture on the inner workings of the observatory from our very own astronomer Dr. Bob! Well, at least you got some good shots while we were all getting educated! Here's one that I got before you hijacked my wide angle lens.

    Fantastic shots Ty. Excellent mastery of the fire, must've had a good assistant.

    Thanks to all those that showed up and for the help in organizing the trip. This was one heck of a camping spot. The weather turned out nice too (once we got above 4000 ft.) Great shots, everyone! Here are a few more to add to the collection! Thanks to Nick, Mac and Diane for setting up strobes and soft boxes for the "outdoor studio" shoot.

    Nice work so far everyone. Fav's are Viveks 2 & 9 (I'm impressed with that glass you got #2,3 with), Nicks Trabuco mountain sunset, Glow Bugs, Marshall's Camp scene under the stars (how long the exposure)?, and the Nick relaxing, DA Observatory (was that a crop)? RZ-alarm clocks. I ended up with about 12 I liked out of 300 (didn't shoot too much) so here are my snaps.

    ONE MO SMOE!


    ONE MO HAMGURGER



    ONE MO CAN 'O BEANS! (notice where he placed his tent)? j/K Travis!



    THREE AMIGIO



    ONE MO SMILE PLEASE?



    OUR OWN ASTRONOMER (THANKS BOB, GREAT STUFF YOU LEARNED ME)
