    wow. That is awesome! You said exposure time of ~5 hours? Is that on digital? If so, how did you combat noise, if you don't mind my asking?

    Wow.

    Somehow your telling us it was taken on T-Max100 suggests to me it was taken on film, wasn't it? Isn't that a type of film?

    And would any digital sensor deal well with a bulb exposure of way over just one hour? Didn't I hear right here on TPF that too long exposed can, indeed, do those things some harm?

    Anyhow: when you finally saw what came out of your leaving the camera out there while you went to bed (?), weren't you all excited? I would have been! Way cool!

    haha, yes this was done on Film, and the camera i use is fully manual. IE mechanical shutter so i dont need batteries to hold it open. From what i have heard most cameras will run out of power after about 1 hour of holding the shutter open but not on fully mechanical cameras.
    I actually didnt go to bed, I set this up around 9pm then went to a bonfire and took it down before i went to bed around 2 am. but when i pulled this out of my tank i was quite excited :)

    Awesome. I don't think this sort of thing is possible with a digital camera.

    well, most old cameras have a shutter lock button, so i just locked the shutter open.
    and yea, only fully mechanical cameras can do such long exposures, thats why when i go digital, i'll still use this camera.

    Im glad you all like it. next time i get to a place away from the city i'll do another one.
