Hello again film forum members!
It has been some time since I have posted any new film images. It is true that I have been having a fling with a mistress named DSLR, but like any illicit romance it can turn on you!
My last imaging session according to my Log book was October 11, 2012. I had just finished a roll of Superia that night and I almost never returned. I began experimenting with digital. It was fun and productive but I missed my old film images. I was delayed further about one year ago. Without warning I suffered a severe heart attack. It was quite the scene. I was a goner for sure if not for the help of some cracker jack EMT's that kept CPR going. I was a dead Nightfly for over 15 minutes. The ER got me back and the chopper flight to an emergency heart catheterization lab placed a stent and after several months of rehab I am back and good as new!
So back to the post. I had one great session in late June. For several back-to-back nights I had weather good enough to image with a new lens and I wanted to share with you all.
The images below are taken with the Pentax 67 and the 400mm F/4 SMC Takumar lens. I used apertures of f/4.8 or f/5.6 for 40-50 minute exposures on Fuji Neopan Acros 100 black and white negative film.

You can view the images and read about them here:
I'll provide one image on this post to tantalize you. Please follow the links as posting multiple images here is quite the chore.
It's good to be back and I see a few of you are still active. Keep them coming. This is the only active film astrophotography forum left. There are still many beautiful images yet to be made.
Film astrophotography in 2014. Who would have thought?
