One problem I hadn't considered propped up immediately. The humidity in dome was 100% Tropical Rain Forest; my camera and lenses which had been sitting in the car were cooled down to 100% Madison Winter Frigid. Instant condensation.
Continually wiping off the filter on top of the lens was an annoyance but not a major problem. Doing the same thing to the sensor would have been a disaster. So the lens stayed on. No real macro images but some decent flower closeup.
Which became even more decent when I used the RAW Therapee features I blogged about yesterday. If you do macro photography RAW Therapee is worth looking at just for Richardson-Lucy deconvolution. (There has to be a better name than "Contrast by Detail Layers.")
Am I about to toss out Photoshop? No. I shot with an off-camera flash but in this image there were a few small areas that reflected the flash straight into the camera and created annoying hot spots. So I imported the jpeg into PS and used the healing brush to clean up the image. Can't have everything in a RAW converter.
Edit-When I posted the image on flickr and viewed the black box original I saw that the image looked noisy. Setting the fine slider to 2.2 did a SUPER GREAT job of bringing out and amplifying the noise in the image! Setting it to zero cleaned the image up. Something to remember if you use the feature.
