    Hey Everybody,

    I decided to test out my new Nikon D50 with a few shots of our aircraft panels. This one turned out the best. I took the pictures inside a hanger with the interior lighted by a worklight bounced off the cockpit ceiling. The camera was on a tripod that just barely fit inbetween the seats and the back bench seat. I replaced the ouside view with another picture I took outside at the airport. The only problems seems to be that the farther away from center, the blurier it seems to get. The picture was taken at 18mm at an f-stop of 3.5. Would using a smaller apperature (3.5+) help this? I'm not used to being able to shoot wide angle!

    Great shot. Nice even lighting on the very nice pannel. Is that a GPS moving map, not sure of the proper name. 1966 C-182K.

    Yup, Garmin 530 fully capable IFR GPS in a 1966 Cessna 182 Skylane. It's quiet a performer with an engine upgraded from 240hp (I think) to about 300hp. Definately outperforms any of the new 182s being made.
