Overall I was pretty meh on the fireworks pictures I took this 4th of July, but this one reminded me of a cosmic skull. It kinda blows my mind and makes me smile!

Been a while since I posted at HardForum. Sooooo many great shots in the 2017 and now 2018 thread.! I’m still experimenting with stuff, I love making new mistakes.
I’m a Kickstarter “super backer”, I will fund stuff that looks interesting from awesome folks I want to see succeed, regardless...
Last of the batch, F-22 Raptor

JStamsek That mountain pic might be one of my faves ever, wow!
I've never been super impressed with the quality I was getting out of the 80-400. That changed Saturday with the Ocean City Air show. Combo of D500 and the 80-400 was INCREDIBLE. Very happy with how these came out. Only half...
Here was the morning version of same tank jumping the berm:

Hi Hardforum, been a while since I had something worth posting here. If there's anything better than seeing a 65 ton Abrams tank go flying over a 3 foot berm and firing while airborne I have yet to see it. Definitely the cover of my book this year!

Yeah that totally didnt work. I added a second monitor temorarily and it looks like in Win 10 it's up and down not left and right and you need to actually select it. What a flipping PITA. Sticking with optical for now...
So I have a new 980TI, I have my old 1080p monitor hooked up via DVI, it works fine. I have also 2 display ports and an HDMI out on the card. I want to send the HDMI to my receiver for surround sound. Doing that tho it identifies that I now have 2 monitors hooked up, despite the fact that there...
Thanks for the kind words on my first Air Show pics from the other day. Full set now up. Lot of work to cull and edit, I think a lot of em are a bit too blue, will see when printed. Think I get rid of most of the fuzz tho.

Yeah, we didn't make the best of cut. Oh well, still something to look forward to last year and we had a heck of a lot of fun making this one so that's reward enough. Thanks for asking! Surprised nobody else here seems to post any videos as much traffic as the APITin20XX threads get...
While this is the Video forum as well as stills it seems there is no thread to pimp our video creations, guess we need one? I searched and didn't find it so I'll happily eat crow if I missed it. Anyway.....
This is our 2014 Baltimore 48 hour film project short: I'm Here for the Kid! This...
I just hooked up my iMac to a receiver and speakers, the issue is that the receiver is hooked up to 4 other devices as well. I'd like to have the option of kicking sound over to the receiver about 10% of the time so the internal speakers need to keep working. I've got the screen mirrored so that...
If that's being asked of me I'll say: Nikon D4, 80-400 lens at 400mm, solid tripod.
Moon: 1/250, F7.1, iso 250.
Nebula & Jupiter 1.3 seconds, F7, ISO 12,800
Lightroom is minor edits to the 4 light sliders, cranked to 10-14 clarity and vibrance, and punched up the sharpmess sliders and a little...
I am still experimenting every chance I get, trying to see what I can make work and grinding slowly better with Astro stuff whenever I can. Still not really set up more than a stable tripod and DSLR, but I got my new scopes out tonight and did some shots with the D4 and the 80-400 too just to...

Yosemite was closed, but we made the best of it. Went past the barriers we could and had to skip the visitors center and all the activities there. Never got a good shot of Half dome's good side because of it. Wound up going to Mono Lake and Mammoth lakes for most of our time there instead...
Probably not much you haven't seen here before in the live sreams EQNext wise, but here's my images from attending SOELive, shows the live quests, panels and stuff for EQ1 and my trip to the Pinball HoF:

I was fortunate enough to win an EVGA GTX760 at an event held by Sony last week. I think it's this model:

Testing out my new 80-400VR2, so far I'm liking it. Handholding is tough, and you can see some blur in this shot even at the high shutter speed and VR engaged. VR might be a mistake with birds, still exploring.

I bought a few of these before the sale, one is my Time Machine backup disk and one I manually backup my RAID to. Keep one cable in and swap the drives out, works great. Obviously needs a quick reformat to work on OSX.
