It's low-light performance seemed impressive, so we couldn't resist trying it out for astro work.
This is our first attempt from last night: We only managed 3x 30-sec before the cloud-bank rolled in!
But we have surmounted the three main challenges with using this camera:
- Pointing it (actually much easier before turning the camera on - using the viewfinder in "optical" mode, rather than a digital back-lit mode!)
- Focussing - as there's no physical infinity "end-stop", we had to resort to taking a series of test-frames at different focus settings and then choosing the optimum (around "50m")
- Getting the Fuji .RAF RAW images into IRIS - we found a way of converting them to 16-bit TIFFs and then loading these.
