Did you have the one that took this on a tripod too?

Nick Weall on March 20, 2012

Amelia Royan I'm just a has bean really, otherwise known as an old fart ~ but with insufficient powers to get a fleet of lasers up and running it would seem :)))

keepclicking I could have, but didn't :)) Things might have ended up like a series of Russian Dolls

A profesional equipement!

Is a tripod really necessary with so much light?

You can use higher ISOs without any noticable noise at the resolution of our screens.

BritPlom ~ A tripod has uses besides just steadying the shot Francois ~ it can help get the horizon level for one thing and ensures a much better composition for another. I also prefer not to use high ISO settings. Having written all of that ~ my little hand held compact can achieve amazing results too :)))

... Is that wire hanging down the trigger for the shutter? If yes, there is an easier way Nick, I am sure you know it but just in case you don't a 2 sec delay time does the job without the wire. ;)

Nick Weall on March 28, 2012

NICK KNACK, The shutter release is there Nick on this occasion so as I can choose the moment as to when I shoot, the frame is composed but the movement within the shot can and will vary. I never use the delay function, the other facility I have but can't be bothered to set up at present is a remote shutter release :~)

i wonder if this is how the Martians 'see' our landers. With idle curiosity - "Now, who left this thing here?"
