It sure did, I included that one for comparison purpose with the built-in flash!

How about almost night (it's a joke):

Unless you get a very good price on the Minolta 7i, I'd buy Minolta's new 7Hi. It has several new features and has a new cool black finish to boot...

(Of course, we talk here about several minutes exposure, which requires also a telescope angle correction motor to “catch” the earth rotation movement. )


NHL,
The pic with the lady on stilt (?) , is it with a flash ?
KCan, thanks for your sample about Minolta D7. They are very impressive and enforce my intention to buy a Minolta D7 Hi as my first digital camera.
I am interested to astronomical photography because my daugher is an astronomer and we have a telescope at home, so I think to take some astronomical shot.
My daughter sais that at the observatory they use CCD devices mainly because with them they can put directly the shot in the computer and they can see them immediatly.

I'm a new 7Hi owner and after some tweaking here's what I could get of a small moon (high up, not harvest). It's been cropped a lot, settings are embedded in the image. A high shutter speed was difference.

I was pleased to have figured this out on my first weekend with 7Hi!
