The Astronomer in the control room
Last week while observing at the Spacewatch telescopes I played around with the wifi connection between my new Canon 70D and my Nexus 7 tablet using the Canon EOS Remote app on the tablet. It allows live viewing on the tablet from the camera as well as some control over exposure and tripping the shutter remotely. Pay no attention to the tablet on my lap. This image was taken with my 24mm lens set to 1 second at f/16 (for maximum depth of field) and ISO 1600 in our 1.8-m control room. BTW, the guy in the chair is yours truly - luckily, I didn't crack the lens.
