Las Vegas, Nevada about 6years ago said: To Rob Barrett: No, all I had with me was my new Samsung Galaxy S6. It takes fantastic photos for a smartphone. Long time ago, I knew of a young girl who won a prestigious photo contest with a cheap instamatic. Forty years ago I took a stunning 15 minute exposure of the Andromeda Galaxy using only a Nikkormat FT2 35mm SLR with a standard F1.4 50mm lens, on Fuji 400 ASA slide film and a simple clock drive for tracking. So it%u2019s not so much about a fancy camera, but keeping your eyes open to Nature%u2019s wonders, and being at the right place at the right time. That%u2019s the hard part.
