Cleaning up star trails

There is a lot of air traffic before 10PM. All of these contrarian trails need to be deleted before posting an image, but the excitement at 6AM is hard to contain, right?

Night Sky take two

New time stack with a new lens. First night cloudless, waxing moon and Mars as closed as it will be for the next two years. 7:30pm to 1:30am, not by choice but by battery charge. 8 seconds exposures at f5:6 at 200 ISO, every 30 seconds. Incandescent bulb white balance selection, because it works well with highway high discharge lamps.

We are trying Warby Parker

Marta needs reading glasses and we are testing Warby Parker. I read about them years ago, but since everyone in the family who needed glasses were set, I couldn’t find an excuse to try them. Now I have one :)

Warby Parker is a new way of getting prescription glasses. If you are lucky enough to live somewhere with a Warby Parker retailer, you can touch the glasses and try them on and then order online a get them two days later (two days!!!). If not, you have the option of Home try-on. You pay for the glasses, up to five pairs, you try them at home and ship back the ones you don’t like/ fit. And like with Toms, with every pair you buy, someone in need gets a free prescription glasses.

What it is not to like?
