    Tomorrow night, Wednesday after midnight and into Thursday morning is the peak of the Gemini's meteor shower which is the best of the year. Only a crescent moon this year so viewing should be good with about 120 per hour under ideal conditions. Great one to photograph meteor streaks.

    I sold my last 4x5 view camera about a year ago with all the lenses. It was a sad day, I have taken thousands of photos with that old Sinar.

    I had an old Sinar too, rebuilt after it had been in a fire ( mostly smoke damage), new bellows, couple of lenses, best one was a Super Angulon which required a rubber bag type bellows.

    Black & White days, circa 1965, Hasselblad 500C. My favorite car of all times, 1953 MG TF, lot of fun.

    Some of my friends had Blads and loved them. I went with a Bronica GS in 6x7, wanted a bigger image and not a square. The Zenzanon glass was excellent too. The Japanese copied a lot of the German designs from Blad and Lica.

    After reading in the astronomy forums a bit about tonights meteor shower I ran across this, very cool perspective by stabilizing the Milkyway.

    I rode the VFR to work yesterday and at the end of the day stuffed a Canon 5D into my back pack. I wanted to do some time-lapse photography of the meteor shower. I had about 75% battery left on the dual battery unit, plenty for what I was going to do. Well I must have flipped the on switch when I put it into my backpack. 12:30 this morning when I set up the camera it was dead. Bummer, missed some good shooting stars.
