Hi all,

I've hovered for a while but have now signed up.

I've been an amateur photographer for a while and run with a D7200. About 2 years ago I went to Crete saw how clear the sky was in the middle of the mountains and took some photos, being somewhat hooked the following year I brought one of my tripods along and started increasing the exposure time remotely with qDSLR. This year I've decided to give it a fairly serious attempt so have bought a Manfrotto 055XPro3, star adventurer and a pole master along with a load of USB cables and 2.8Ah USB battery to run it. I leave tomorrow for Crete so assuming I get some nice photos I'll post them.

However I do have a friend on the forum who is helping me kit up with a more serious setup to start learning with.

Hi and welcome. Cretan weather will no doubt be better than what we're getting at the moment.
