Columba and chick are the stars of this image

Taken nearly 40 yrs ago from my roof, from about 75 metres, eyepiece
projection, with 6" f/6 Newt. Ricoh KR10 Kodak Ektar 25. Chick is thought to
be whispering either "what is that three legged creature with a big eye over
there Mum", or "I need to go for a widdle Mum". Vignetting was deliberate,
sort of like a spotlight. Oh, and I ended up with a flat area on the top of my head.

Nice one Raymond. Maybe this will start a new thread with terrestrial photos taken through a telescope!

Thanks Mickoid.
I see this thread has been moved. I put it here for the same reason I put Cetus the whale here, which didn't seem to cause any concern. For anyone
who doesn't know, Columba [ The Dove] is a constellation. A bit of learning for newbies who are not familiar with them.

Yes, I realise that Raymo and we allowed the Cetus thread as a once-off but we need to keep each forum in order.

Thanks

Or maybe a new thread for extreme scoping. That is a beautiful shot . Film just has that look. On the roof with a scope. I have some great sky images from my roof.
Did you fall on your head or have I missed a reference ?

G'day Sunfish, and thanks. Funnily enough, there is an analogy with digital
and analogue sound. Analogue sound[for example vinyl] reproduced on
high quality equipment is superior to what you get from a CD or DVD played through the same sound system. Digital sound as used on CDs etc: is not
continuous, it comes in extremely brief bits, chunks, whatever, from memory
46 per second, which produces what sound engineers call "brilliant" sound,
meaning hard or crystalline, lacking in warmth/ depth.
With digital/film, film has that special something, which is that digital looks
extremely "clean" because all edges are more sharply defined, and film is
"rougher" at the edges, doesn't look so somehow artificial. Most people these
days are not aware that a lot of professional imaging is still done on film,in
fact most pro landscape imagers use film. All movies were done on film until 2014, the number has dwindled since then, but some still are. Film also handles over exposure much better than digital, which is another plus.
I don't know what started me off on this diatribe, sorry, I must stop now.

I forgot your question. The image in the eyepiece was of course inverted, so I had to stand on my head to get the image.
