01 Moon & Venus Yarnell AZ (1024x768)

Even though the photo shows the moon and Venus I can also see Jupiter, but the camera can’t.  The above shot taken with my old Fuji Finepix S1500 12x zoomed.

02 Moon & Venus Yarnell AZ (1024x702)

This shot taken with my new camera, max zoom.

03 Nikon D5100 Yarnell AZ (1024x768)

Here’s what I bought, Nikon D5100 with an 18-55mm lens.  Now I want the 55-200mm.  It never ends.

  4. Well, that does it. I somehow will eventually get down to you and bring my lenses…all of them. I’m a Nikon person, too. And the top photo is the better one so far, but you can get good ones with your new baby; just need practice.

  7. hehe….you’re right. It never does end, does it? I love my lenses, but there always seems to be a new one just waiting to be purchased:) Love your shots of the night sky. These are some of the trickiest to capture on camera:) So…..have you gotten a harvest moon over the Grand Canyon? We were there on the South Rim this past October? and saw the moon rise over the Canyon….it took my breathe away. Absolutely amazing. I love forward to your pictures at the canyon. It’s pretty exciting stuff.

  8. I would love to have that old camera. Do you want to sell it?

  9. You may want to consider the 18-200 lens. Then you wouldn’t have to change lenses.

  10. Great camera! You will enjoy every moment out of it I am sure. A camera whatever it is is a never ending experience.

  11. I’m sooooo envious!! I have to wait a month more before I can get my Nikon!! Enjoy your camera… I’ll enjoy following your new blog and being able to post comments!

  14. Nice! I started renting the lenses that I was interested in. It really helped me save money by convincing me NOT buy a few lenses that I thought would like.

    I’ve rented from Would love to rent the an 800mm super telephoto for a few days… But yikes, the price!
