No one answered them and where did my other post go?

The threads were deemed as redundant, and were deleted by moderators. You should have received an automated email expalining it.

If you post a thread and no one replies to it, that does not mean that you keep on reposting it in new threads. However, you may bump it up by replying to it once if a considerable amount of time has passed with no response.

Thanks,

It depends....during the day if I have lots of time 8MP with high compression for lots of photos......quick 30 min luch, 8MP with low compression for quality. Nighttime with tripod...RAW with High quality JPEG. It reall depends on what I am doing and for how long.


And has anyone here ever been to boston airport for spotting? Yes, but not me!


Does anyone know of any regional airports here w/ observation areas?
No, I am not aware of any and think there are not any.....I would have sniffed it out.

Hope this helps :D :wink:

Both JFK and La Guardia have "offifial" observation areas...but they're closed. Nowadays, the closest thing to a designated 'spotting location' we have are the places we frequent the most, which can be found on the homepage by going to Tools > Spotting Maps (I've mentioned this many times before).

I've never really spotted at smaller airports like TEB, HPN, or FRG, but there may be parking lots or small fields around the perimeter where you sit for a while.

It's a hike, but I know the Albany airport actually built an observation area that is open to the public! With picnic tables etc....now there was some forethought.
