Comet Pan-STARRS photo 'fail' - March 12
I blew this opportunity due to not renting a good lens this week. My long lens is simply too junky to get a sharp image in 30mph winds. All of the images I shot tonight were soft. I tried all sorts of tactics to block the wind, none worked. This one was the least-blurred of the set, enough to sharpen and size down so you don't see the softness that much. If I hade a larger image here, you'd see how bad it is.
I doubt I'll give this another go. Without the right equipment, it's a waste of time - not to mention the comet will not be lined up favorably for this shot after today.
|Maybe not up to your highest standards Dan, but you still managed to make an image of comet Pan-STARRS. That's way more than most can say.|
