WARREN CONNECTICUT – I decided to push shooting in the dark as far is it can go -more exploration in the dark with my Leica Monochrom and 24mm Summilux lens. This is hand held shooting straight up. This looks boring but is actually quite revealing – star images can be used to diagnose lens quality issues (actually star images are the classic tool for these purposes). In this case examination of the detailed star images in the corner of the frame reveal “seagull” shaped stars, which indicates uncorrected coma.
