Last night was a cold night and snow crunched under my feet but before my toes fell off from frostbite I was able to take this shot.

Orion is in the background and one of the observatory's telescope domes is lit up by moonlight in the foreground. I had a small gap before the overcast skies took over.

An AW100 is certainly good enough to join, you want in?

But you were never out! Whats the reasoning behind possibly picking up a D7000? Just have some lenses left and figure you might as well get a DSLR to have around when you need the capability that mirrorless sometimes doesn't provide?

Sweet! I did some astrophotography for the first time a few days ago (pic on page 39), froze my butt off but I really enjoyed it, definitely plan on getting back out there soon Clouds are my biggest problem so far,....it's always freakin' cloudy when I want to go out and take some pics!

Pretty much. I am really enjoying the mirrorless and MF is a blast, but I also miss fast accurate AF at times and the NEX cameras are not known for that. None of the mirrorless systems really are. Not yet at least. I went with the D7000 this time around rather than getting another D300 because of the D300's lack of low light ability. I figured the D7000 was a step or two up and has pretty much everything else I want over the D300. I was able to grab a body for pretty cheap with less than 500 clicks on the shutter. I figured, why not.

Elmo was that a shot of the ISS passing over or another satellite? There wasn't a periodic brightening so I don't think it was a jet and it was fairly consistent with it's brightness through the flight so I don't think it was an iridium flare (reflective satellite)
Cool shot.

Clouds do make things tricky. I was just outside and saw that it was clear. I may try and go get the 32" telescope up and running...although it's been buggy lately.

Thanks for the add, I'll post up some shots of my tank when I get a break from school and work >:O Decent little 55 that's heavily planted. The right half of it is awesome, but the left half is very spacious. I'll at least try to get the picture from my phone even though it's not the quality of my D90.

Here's the picture from my phone.

This is about two weeks into the tank. Since then it has exhibited massive growth in full eco complete substrate at about 3.5-4" deep across the tank. I've got a 2x54W T5HO fixture as well. Filtration is a Rena XP2, and that thing does work. I haven't gotten around to pressurized CO2 quite yet, but it's definitely going to be an elaborate setup. I also want a 12 long rimless but I'm gonna have to wait on that. The good DSLR pics will come when I get home.

Just a plane, I think ...it was taken at 17mm so I'm pretty sure it's just a plane lol...

The D3100 is the lowest level for a new Nikon DSLR. There's a number of much better cameras great prices though on the used market.

Like what? I'm interested in a DSLR, but I'd love bang for my buck.

The D300 is $450-500ish and it's a borderline pro camera...far, far from an entry level. The D7000 prices will be dropping with the announcement of the D7100. You can get them for $650-700 right now. The D7000 is a highend consumer grade camera. It's arguably as good or better in some regard than the D300. There's also the older D80 ($250ish), D90 ($500), and D200 ($300). All great cameras. Prices are approximate but general price ranges.
