Long exposures are the truest test of a quality system and best technique. Here is a very technical and educational article on the subject :)

    That was an excellent read, thanks Manny. Interesting to see that my crop body has a different limit than my full frame. My only question is that, I don't seem to recall discussions about diffraction when shooting film. Was there a film version of this phenomenon?

    Fortunately or unfortunately film was a chemical process, not a mathematical/mechanical one. There was no Bayer array, no demosaicing algorithms, no Photo Cells, no microlenses, etc. Film was much more chaotic in nature and each site could handle each color and they were micron sized "pixels" per se so it behaved a lot differently. Nevertheless, there was a limit, but probably extremely high given that the resolution of film was surpassed by 12MP sensors in my opinion.

    I believe either Berger Bros. or Cameta, both in Amityville rent lenses. One of them does, the one further away from the tracks. They advertise it on their site, or at least they used to. I have rented from Lens Rentals in the past before purchasing my 100 - 400, they had decent rates, much better than the local guys.

    Re: Cameta and Berger Bros. They will rent you equipment, but they immediately put a hold on your charge card for the cost of the lens. They remove it when you return the lens. The on line sites do not do that.

    History Under the Stars cancelled for today due to inclement weather, forecasts show up to 50MPH Gusts. I am truly Sorry
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    While that is very disappointing, it is beyond your control. I want to thank you very much for the efforts and for offering it to us to begin with, it is greatly appreciated!

    I second what Joe said. Fred you can't fight the wx and it seems determined to do what it can to kill this weekend. We appreciate the good company we've had over the week and really what matters is that and not planes. There's next year to look forward to!
