Flying at Svarterud

Trying out the new Inspire 1 rig - so flying again at the stables. Flew one battery of two - fingers got too cold to fly the second.

Note to remember:

  • When charging your iPad - remember to take it with you

No fancy stuff yet - didn't go higher than 40m, didn't try the special flight modes or Autopilot app - still getting used to the feel of it.

It's very very responsive and extremely stable in the air.

Used the ND filter - so some of the early shots are a bit dark - but later on it was better with it. Hard to judge - will get better at that with practice.

A first test of the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer tracker head. This shot is made up of 10 shots - each 2 mins at f/2,8 ISO 100 14mm. Merged using Starry Landscape Tracker then adjusted in PS (merged in one shorter exposure at the bottom to get a a sharper land silhouette. You can see that even out of town - still struggling with light pollution - far too much light in the sky. But - still fun to play with.
Langlielva near Elveli
Introduction between a norweigan fjord horse and a halfling to see if they could share a paddock. The introduction went well - they now keep each other company in the paddock every day
