Yesterday, in the early evening, I photographed the full moon once again. Again with the Nikkor 500mm f/5.6 PF, but this time additionally with the Nikon 1.4 teleconverter, so effectively 700mm plus 1.5 crop factor of the Fuji X-T3. Above the result from 500 images. Of the 500 images, 100 had > 90% quality for […]
Approximately 10000 starlings are currently seen on the Cappel-Neufeld compensation areas and the adjacent dike. From the observation tower a few avocets could also be observed and a meadow pipit was quite busy supporting the breeding.

Short test of the Fringer NF-FX (FR-FTX1) adapter with the X-T3 and the Nikkor 500f/5.6 PF. The adapter works excellent. I still have to experiment a bit with the autofocus settings of the X-T3, but otherwise it is already very good. Exif data is also fully adopted. This could make the Nikon D500 obsolete 🙂 […]

This inspires to take more pictures of the earth’s satellite and especially to “stack” them to get more details in the pictures.
