    Default Nightime experiment gone well

    While on a fishing /camping trip the last six days, we had an "issue" with a neighbor in the next camp spot,
    running a very loud generator half the night, so sleeping was out of the question for a while.
    Out come the tripod and the E5 to play with the stars dancing above my boat.
    Shot with the E5 and 11-22 @ 15mm, ISO800, 60 second exposure at f/ 6.3
    Noise clean up in the E5 is a breeze compared to the E510

    Very nice, Jim!
    WTF! A generator for camping?! For what? Running his TV? ....
    What is this world coming to?

    Looks good! Also, very short star trails given a 60sec exposure.

    Very nice capture, Jim. Next time we come up, we're determined to plan far enough ahead to spend at least one night in the park so I can do some sunrise, sunset and night shooting. Maybe by then I'll have a new body to deal with the noise I'd get with the good old E-510.
    Cheers, Dave
