星軌拍攝技巧 數問 -

1).數碼機因hot pixel而唔適合曝得耐...最好分開影影夠幾個鐘...咁每張間隔之間都要俾CMOS斗下氣?
有師兄 教過 分十幾張 每張 10-20min 再合成 好過 一野 暴 幾粒鐘, (菲林 令計)

2).數碼機有D人話用ISO 100、有人話用ISO 400-800好...如果用合成方法...其實係咪都係就番光害而定...定係關雜訊事?
睇天氣 , 小弟 用 o個次 用 iso 100

5).北極星仰角澳門係23度,咁香港一樣??
4季 都唔同 位置, 用星座 搵 會準確 d, e+ 係 冬季, 北極星 位置 係 獵戶座 (lei 個最易 認, 唔會 搵唔倒 ... ) 頭頂 (腰帶 致 頭頂 距離 再過 5倍左右)

附圖 係 舊年 去雲南 香格里拉 時影, 本泥想 長暴, 不過 o個晚 太涷 個人 頂唔順 要收皮 反酒店

=====
這張是11月15日凌晨拍攝的M42獵戶座星雲, 大埔的光害較嚴重, 所以要加上IDAS V4濾鏡作長時間曝光, 分三段不同時間曝光及作Layer Masking 處理, 把動態範圍拉闊. 在月光的影下算是滿意, 希望之後可以分數晚作10小時以上的曝光並加長每一張frame 的曝光時間 (現在是5分鐘一張), 使到暗位的表現進一步改善.

* Increase your exposure to new and different ideas
* Spend as much time learning from your trading as you actually spend trading
* Manage yourself, not just your risk and your positions

直覺的奧妙 — Blink - https://thestandnews.com[..]%A6%BA%E7%9A%84%E5%A5%A7%E5%A6%99-blink/

1)  How does the person spend his or her free time?  Per Ayn Rand's observation above, what does he or she do for enjoyment?  

2)  How does the person respond to your successes?  Many people are willing to commiserate with you when you're down and elevate themselves in the process.  A person of genuine goodwill celebrates your successes and is happy for your happiness.

3)  What strong beliefs does the person voice and live through their actions?  Character means standing for what you believe in and living your beliefs.  Go along and get along might be comfortable, but commitment is what powers effective action in the world.

複雜的事情要簡單做。 簡單的事情要認真做。 認真的事情要重複做。 重複的事情要創造性地做。

Franklin D. Roosevelt - "Men are not prisoners of fate, but only prisoners of their own minds."

Given all that fear and panic, it's no surprise that otherwise rational people sometimes (often!) ignore rational arguments.

"Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition."

"It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer." --Albert Einstein

Friedrich Nietzsche - "It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages."

Denzel Washington - "You pray for rain, you gotta deal with the mud too. That's a part of it."

所以我认为同学们不要妄自菲薄,见到自己不懂的,或似懂非懂的,就认为是高深学问,畏而敬之。更不要骗自己,不懂却认为是懂。同学要问︰皇帝何来新衣了?不久前一位同学问及他高举的诺斯的某术语何解。我说不懂。我怎会不懂诺斯呢?同事十三年,好几个学期他旁听我的课。诺斯对问题重要性的感受好,这是天赋,是他的本钱,创造术语只不过是他的成名玩意,而这种颇为流行的玩意他的本领只是一般。是的,经济学行内有走不同路线的人,本领各各不同,有些成名,有些被认为是笨蛋。同学不要管这些。要管的是分析,因为这是脑子的操练,对整生的任何一方面都有好处。论分析,其中一个要点是任何术语,甚至任何一个字,其意思或理解都不要放过。坚持要知道,要明白。这样,三几年后同学会体会到学问有真假之分。是的,做学问要执着。 - http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_47841af70100cw6c.html
