    Fireworks photos?

    I don't have a cable :(, I can use a delay though. I am going to go as early as I can, but I have 3 kids under 5 and I have to take them too! We are trying to decide on a location now. We had an offer to go out on a boat this year, but with the fire everything is up in the air.

    Help, I have a spot!

    i dusted that off too. Is there a technique? Or a way to see if its clean without having to keep putting the lens on and checking, then taking it off and doing it over again? How much pressure can i safely apply when cleaning it?
