I've  been creeping closer to getting into astrophotography and just looking at how to capture shots.  Do I use my Canon 60D with a T mount onto which ever telescope I finally pick up?  Or do I use something that is made specifically for astro photography.

I'm just trying to figure out, what's the difference in terms of final image taken between a Canon 60D and for example this camera here -  http://www.stellarvue.com/starlight-xpress-trius-sx-694-camera/

I'm going to have to follow suit with John on this one.  #2 is my favorite with #1 as a close 2nd.

My pick for the day:  www.photographytalk.com/photos/389077  

I like this shot because it reminds me of this small lake that I grew up on  "Lake Cossayuna".

Love the atmosphere in this one!

Indeed, the fog works well here. Gives this a 'Sleepy Hollow' feeling to it!

One good way to know and see if a scene (street, country scene, peoples, etc...) is to adjust your camera for B & W that way, you can see immediately in B & W before the click. I’m in RAW all the time witch mean when I transfer you see the picture in color, that’s mean your color it’s not lost; from that base, you can change to B & W because you’ve seen those picture before the camera click. 

Only the fact to eliminate the color in the camera, it remote the distracting color, the way to see different it’s magic! 

I also have my default at B&W, easier to see if you got the image you wanted without the colour...

I also shoot RAW+JPEG and use the raw converter to adjust the B&W image...

Melissa Zamberletti created a new topic ' 2nd shooter liability question at wedding gig' in the forum. 1 hour 57 minutes ago

I have a eager to get into wedding photographer who has asked if they can tag along turning my wedding jobs to observe and do what I tell them.  No charge to me. 

All the photos would belong to me.  My question is, would I need to get special permission from my insurance company or will they need their own policy?  

If they screw up, damage something, or accidentally harm someone... this liability rest on me or them?

Wouldn't a drone be really loud and distracting, especially in a wedding context??
