    The weather was good another night, and - although I was almost out too late (after 3 am it's too bright for this kind of landscapes here) - I think I got a nice one. And before you ask, it's not a composite this time. ;)

    Poki, print that. Large. Hang it on the wall. Look at it and smile. :)

    This one is just amazing. Single exposure right ? Exif available ?

    Yep, single exposure. The EXIF aren't embedded, but here you go: 24mm (the Sonnar), ISO 3200, 13s, f/1.8.

    Thanks. And where did you focus on that one ?

    Infinity. As usual, I used a bright star with the 14x magnification on the screen to focus correctly.

    I agree. This is your best shot I've seen Poki and you have many incredible shots. This one is breathtaking.

    Yeah, this one is truly great. The fact that it is a single exposure makes it all the more great.

    Glad you like it. I'm so happy I finally make some progress. Reading and practicing really pays off well. :)

    By the way, just received my 12mm Touit. Looks as well built as the 24mm Sonnar so far, but the AF, well, is bad. Slow and noisy. Not a problem for an UWA lens, but I could imagine it being a deal-breaker for somebody who is looking for using the 32mm (which uses the same kind of focus motor) as an always-on lens. We'll see how it fares in the next clear night (or day, if I find any time to shoot during a day ...).

    Oh to see star filled skies like that again, one of the bad aspects of living in a city. Where was this taken? And what is the shaft of light emanating from the the mountain? This is a wonderful photo. Very nice cropping.
