Haida Clear Night Filter

So it's the month of December, while Santa is busy with his final preparations for Christmas... I received a early Christmas present of my own thanks to Haida Filters, the Clear Night light pollution filter. For those who have never heard of light pollution filters before, what they do is reduce / cut out the light wavelength associated with city lights... well that's it in a basic explanation.So what benefits can the Haida Clear Night light pollution filters have on your photographs? They can most certainly reduce the amount of glow from bright objects, which in turn increase contrast and detail.

Nikon D810a v D850 Single Noise Evaluation

Nikon D850 v Nikon D810a So I was lucky enough to get my hands on a Nikon D850 for a couple of hours and during that time I didn't really get to test it out nightscape wise, with a large glowing thing in the sky called the moon washing out all those stars, along with being in a heavily light polluted zone there wasn't too much testing I could do.  A couple of things that jumped straight out at me were the illuminated buttons which could make things much easier at night. They weren't a strong illumination, just a nice back-lit...

My most used wide angle lens - Nikon 14-24mm F2.8G

            The Nikon 14-24 F2.8 would have to be my most used lens. When it comes to nightscape photography there are so many things you take into consideration when selecting a lens like...How flat of a field across the sensor does the lens produceHow much light the lens will let inWhat kind of aberrations are involved with the lensFor me I highly recommend the Nikon 14-24 F2.8 lens for many reasons. There is very little to no coma in the corner of the lens, meaning stars are going to be pinpoint right across the frame....
