  1. No need to say this is a rather amateur (like myself) pic of stars, which I love. The yellow lights come from 3 cities 20 miles away. An amateur astronomer friend of mine made some remarks on it. We can see the Southern Cross in the center bottom, pointing to the right and up. Just above the Cross, in the range of the Milky Way, we see a small concentrated cloud , the great nebula of Eta Carinae, located about 7500 light years, within which there is a giant star of the same name. In the middle of the image a little to the right, we see some yellow clouds and just above a small bluish-gray little cloud that is the Large Magellanic Cloud (one of two small satellite galaxies of our Milky Way). The Small Magellanic Cloud is almost hidden by the yellow cloud, halfway up the image to the right (color is gray). That brightest star of all, in the middle and up, is Canopus, the second brightest star around the sky (after Sirius). D700 & 14-24mm f/2.8G @ 14mm f/2.8 13s ISO 3200 Thank you for viewing.

    Fake IR

    I feel kind of embarrased to be deceived by Hoya like this.

    Fake IR

    Thanks for the explanation Bjorn. Despite all this, I think the effect of this filter is quite interesting. Best regards.

    Fake IR

    Thanks Chris. I used this title because someone once said that these images produced with the R72 are not true IR. It caused a lot of discussion on the other forum. Since I'm not a scientist, I prefer to consider it fake and avoid such discussions. Best regards,

    Fake IR

    A D80. I think the dark sky and white plants have a quite similar IR effect. Thank you for the comment.
