Are you people using digital or SLR cameras? And are some of them taken with wide angle lenses; if so, how wide?
The photos of mine above were all done on a Nikon F401s SLR with Sigma 28-80mm lens, so not that wide.
I have now got a Nikon F65 and Nikon F50 (spare body) as of November last year. Last month I bought a Nikon Coolpix 4500 from the US due to excellent £-$ rate... I paid £221 against £399.99 minimum in the UK. The main reason I bought this particular model was simply as it is one of the few digital cameras that has a delayed shutter over 15 seconds, in fact up to 5 minutes on 'bulb' setting.
This is very important for astrophotography which I am also interested in...
