These pictures were taken on March 27, at about 8:00 and 8:30 respectively, on the shore of Lake Ontario. The first is a 40 second unguided exposure on Fuji 800 Super G, with a fill flash. A Vivitar Series-1 28-90mm zoom lens was set at about 28mm and f/3.5. The second is a six minute exposure with the same film and lens, with the lens zoomed in to 90mm. The camera was mounted piggyback on a Celestron-8. The green pattern is a tree.
