There are still users of that ancient art of film astrophotography, and I would like to interject an image here between all the tech talk and magnificent CCD works. But I love film and believe oil spaced lenses were made for each other.



A recent frame of the M8 M20 area - cropped to remove some vignette in the corners - don't have the processing skills or Pixinsight to deal with that. A Pentax 67 camera - E200 film with 90 minutes pushed 1.5, guided with an outdated ST-4 on an old G11 with the made for Celestron label on it.

Igor,



Knowing all the required technical skills and patience to do it, this is a wonderful work of art.

Awesome...and you get no quarrel from me :) ��BTW...I still have my P67 and I also used E200 as well (that is years ago). Off the shelf non-hypered slide film seemed to work best. I don't know of anyone processing slide film in my immediate area anymore so my P67 is in its case; its last use was in Alaska back in 2004.

I appreciate the comments - especially from those who were part of of the "Order" and understand the challenges. There still are places which develop E6 - and I can pass them along. E200 is now long gone - but there are other films available.

Frank - I've seen your frames on Pbase and enjoyed them. Always nice to find another film shooter. Well done - we have a nice group at Cloudy Nights Film Forum. Are you after E200 in 120 or 35 format? There are a couple of us with some 2010-11 that was frozen when fresh, that we might be willing to part with - 120 format. Ebay might be another option. There are other options as well as far as film goes like Fuji Superia and Kodak Gold.
