Hello! After some problems with scanning I finally have photos to share. This is my first photo I present here taken with the Zenitar 16mm fisheye lens. I get it mainly to capture zodiacal light, band and gegenschein, which are rare phenomena at my site. These object are too wide to fit into the FOV of my Pentax 6x7 lenses. The fisheye lens for Pentax 6x7 is too expensive, so I decided to buy the fisheye for my old good 35mm Praktica camera.

So in this picture you can see the evening zodiacal light hidden by the clouds :grin: . They started to appear exactly when I started to photograph. This was the first and last time when I saw the light in the evening. In spite of that I think the photo has certain charm. It reminds me lomography.

This backyard is my main observing place. You are going to see these roofs often now.

Good to see your new image Michal. Fine looking sky. It does have a Lomo look to it :-)

Thanks Jim and TxStars.

Jim, that night was one of those better. I'm on the border of yellow and green zones in the LP maps. Are you going to have some new photos?

You are right TxStars. It was taken on the beginning of last year. If you take care, you can guess the date.

If skies are clear I will be doing the upcoming dark run. I've got my extreme cold weather gear all set out :grin:
