My most used and loved lenses are the Takumar Preset lenses and the Tair 3 300mm Preset. There is just something about Presets that give a very 3D rendering and the huge number of aperture blades (sometimes as many as 20) really give great bokeh.

    For the two above shots, I used a simple barn door tracker I constructed from plans found here: A Tracking Platform for Astrophotography | Gary Seronik.com
    I was asking you - and if it was your gear you shot with - thanks for clarifying.

    I know of a couple local groups that have star-gazing events open to the public - and let people view through their very expensive 'scopes - sometimes let you attach camera-bodies and attempt shots.
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    If you are at all interested in night photography, I'd really recommend you build a barn door tracker. It is pretty easy and allows for long exposure photography. I haven't shot any night landscapes with it yet but I will soon. Using two images, one using the tracker and one stationary, then superimposing them, you can get great, surreal looking night landscapes.

    I'll be taking the barn door tracker to Vedauwoo shortly for some camping and night landscapes. Vedauwoo is a great rock climbing area in southern Wyoming with very different rock formations. Here's a couple of daylight photos I took there last week. It will be a great place to shoot night landscapes from.

    That's quality. If you could've gotten that exposure with a shorter shutter so the clouds didn't have so much movement it'd been really eerie.

    What was the exposure on that?

    One of those "There's no way this will work" shots

    But somehow it came out pretty good. Had to act fast as the guy was a bit curious as to what we were doing wandering about before sunrise (looking for a good spot for sunrise photos) but he stayed put long enough for me to pull off the shot.

    Not a night shot but it was taken in total darkness. It was done in the basement of the house I was taking some photography classes at.

    That Moumnent Valley shot is so cool and this might be my all time favorite MTBR thread. I'll pitch in, this was a couple years back with my old camera and was the first time I've ever tried night photos with it. I now have a new camera and I can't wait to get some night shots with it.

    Night in SLC, I rode my bike around to get these shots, so I'm counting it as bike related.
