"Chris What scope are you using and does your field flattener also change the focal length? Looking at your image I do see some minor distortion in the extreme corners, mostly on the right side. The left side is almost perfect, well to my eye anyway.…"

Photo Sharing and Blog - What's the best option?

Posted on April 19, 2012 at 2:31pm 0 Comments

Image size is not restricted or "resized" on upload.

Multiple Image file types (png, tiff, FITS, RAW if possible)

Large amount of storage.

Private folders as well as public. Password…

Hi Russ. Sorry for the tardy reply. I ws using a Cannon Rebel t3i with the kit telephoto lens.

Hi Russ, I am using a Cannon T3i:

Exposure Time: 1/200 sec., Aperture Value: 7.00 EV (f/11.3), ISO Speed Rating: 200.

I am just dipping my toes into the water and welcome any/all suggestions. I am eager to learn this hobby.
