Finally got a chance to do some imaging after a long winter that seemed like it would never go away. Took these shots last night through a C11 Edge with Optec Lepus, 450D XSi modded, on a G11.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks guys.

mpgxsvcd: I used ISO 800. I have a dark library that I built up at ISO 800 so I tend to always shoot at 800.
