The first picture was taken in Peira Cava near Nice - France, Long. 07 21 E, Lat 43 53 N. Elevation: 1500 m. The seeing was good, temperature 0=B0 C, 20% humidity. A very strong wind was blowing and we had to shield the C5 mount from it. The picture was taken using a 50mm Nikon lens at F/D 4, in 4mn on Ektar 1000 on a motorized C5 mount. Two villages are visible in the background and the tree on the right was lit with the help of a maglite.
The second picture was taken using a 50mm Nikon lens at F/D 4, in 4mn on FUJI G 800 on a motorized C5 mount. Two villages are visible in the background and look like the mouth of a volcano.
