I have never got a shot of any Kingfishers on my rods before but managed up to a hundred of this one over a four day period. I think this one is a juvenile.

I'm in sw London so I've got heavy light pollution in all directions. I read on the lonely speck site about red intensifier filters cutting light pollution but it's not working out for me. Some weird things happen with the star colours so trails look crap and I can't stack multiple frames to clean them up as the star might be a different colour in each frame.
Maybe with a camera that gives single files clean enough it might work well

500th or 640th, I think I should go a bit higher. Shot it in video and grabbed a few stills, there was no way I could do anything else with any hope of success. Handheld at 3000mm, subject about 250 miles away going 5 miles a second. Thereís some great shots that someone got with a properly mounted telescope where you can even see someone on a spacewalk.

Just over half an hour until tonightís first pass and itís cloudy so no playing tonight.

I did want to try for the comet but laziness and lack of a decent northerly view that doesnít contain east Londonís light pollution means Iím looking at other peopleís pics and saying ďI could have done that.Ē

That moves bloody quick, what shutterspeeds do you manage with that?

Did you get any shots of the comet, I've been too busy to risk going to work sleep deprived to try for a shot

That's not hard, this is the International Space Station handheld last night with a Nikon P1000. I'll try for something better tonight, clouds permitting.

There's a chance I might get my dad's old one, which was actually his dads, apparently it should be in my uncles loft.

I'd be over the moon with that

Just watched the add with James hunt

I remember the Olympus Trip adverts with David Bailey.
Very funny.
Great camera in its day.

I don't think I'd use a larger format, just the size and cost per shot would mean I'd have to plan days around using it, which would likely see it stay in a cupboard once the novelty had worn off.
My dad had an Olympus trip years back, might be nice to get one of them
