we went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium - it was more like the Monterey Bay Tourist trap though.. We managed to have a good time even though it was crowded when we went. I had the bright idea of going on a Saturday. Not my best idea but hey, who is perfect? Anyhow, I shot this hand held with my 85MM - I was really not as impressed as my last visit. It was less crowded then and I didn't feel guilty for shooting so long at each installation. The jelly fish always amaze me so here you go. I like to think of this as the celebrity jelly fish because it has two backup singers in the background. This particular jelly also had some spot light action going... so yea, celebrity jelly fish for your consideration.

shot this using my D3, buddys older 500MM manual. it is comparable to the shot using my other buddys 10" celestron telescope but this only took me 10 minutes to setup. it was F4 at 640th on mirror lockup - ran the RAW through CS and added some focus, some saturation and called it good.
