As the renowned 20th century inventor, Buckminster Fuller, famously said in 1979, “Since the initial publication of the chart of the electromagnetic spectrum, humans have learned that what they can touch, smell, see, and hear is less than one-millionth of reality.” ‘Full Spectrum Light’ by definition is electromagnetic energy that encompasses the spectrum of infrared, visible and near-ultraviolet light.

DSLR Modifications

"Imaged the Pleiades Saturday night with the new filter on the Canon 350D and I'm very pleased! Taken through a Stellarvue 85mm refractor at f/5.8. 16 X 5 min. at ISO 800. The filter seems to work great. Thank you so much. "I had the chance to use the camera last night. "I had the filter removal mod done by Hap Griffin and am very pleased with it. " - BB "Please feel free to use my name as a reference if someone is looking for someone to talk to about your filter removal "service". "I have been meaning to tell you how happy I am with the modified camera. "Like WOW...and not to sound to corny ...but I only wish I would have done this earlier.

" - GG "Just wanted to let you know that the camera performed beyond my expectations! " "Either way you go, I highly recommend Hap Griffin's option #3 mod. DCamCapture (engl.) DCamCapture is a small tool to copy images from a Nikon DSLR to a computer during shooting.

DCamCapture (engl.)

Currently it only runs on MS Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.This tool was the result of playing around with the Nikon SDKs. Windows 7: I tested DCamCapture with my D300 on Windows 7 and it works. Windows 7 starts automatically an application that grabs the camera. Take care that you have closed this application before starting DCamCapture. Only one application can have access to the camera. Functions: - Copies images during shooting - Start Image capture - Timer to capture image sequences - LiveView with image capture and video recording (MJPEG in AVI file) function - Writing IPTC data in Bibble 4 files (*.bib) - Battery charge state - Application window always on top option Supported Cameras: - D40, D40x, D60, D80, D90 - D200, D300, D300s, D700 - D3, D3s, D3x Older cameras works only with an installed Nikon Capture Control (latest release).

Astrophotography with Canon EOS

Astrophotography captures the beauty and majesty of the night sky and wonders of the universe. Canon DSLRs are amazingly versatile for astrophotography. We can shoot long exposures of deep-sky objects at high ISOs because Canon CMOS sensors are remarkably sensitive and have exceptionally low noise. We can also use them to do time-lapse photography of the heavens, and even use the high-definition video modes for high-resolution planetary photography. Unlike specialized astronomical CCD cameras, DSLRs don't require a computer for use in the field for focusing and recording of the images. We can get started in astrophotography with really simple equipment – just a camera and lens on a tripod. Special Considerations for Deep-Sky Astrophotograph Image Trailing Celestial objects in the sky all appear to move because of the Earth's rotation. White Balance Milky Way.
