    Star Trail Shoot at Punggol Jetty
    -------------------------------
    Date: 25~26 Jun 05

    Start time: 6pm, meet at Punggol MRT station, nearest exit facing bus interchange.
    We will then make our way for dinner nearby and then to the jetty.

    End time: Approx 5am. Depending on ppl's energy level/weather, maybe overnite if no/litte clouds. Keep tracking the weather at www.nea.gov.sg.

    To bring:
    --------
    1. Camera (digital/film ok, better results with film, slides the best, try to get iso 100 or slower).
    2. Small torch.
    3. Tripod.
    4. Cable/Remote release is good to have, but if you have a self-timer button, it can work, too. Be sure you test it out (and the mirror lockup) at home first as it's going to be tough to fiddle in the dark.
    5. Lens: WA or 50mm ok. Don't forget the hood.
    6. Digital users: Extra fully charged battery.

    [Optional]
    ---------
    7. Flash to light up the foreground.
    8. Lens warmer to reduce condensation. (need Dennis/Icarus to explain)
    9. Insect repellent, drinks, something to sit on.

    Wet-Weather
    -------------
    A bus stop is located 200m from the jetty so it will be a good t-shelter. Also, there is a 24hr Kopi Tiam at Punggol Central. We can hang there until the rain dies down.

    And here's the sign-up sheet:

    01. icarus
    02. ykia
    03. denniskee
    04. theITguy
    05. jkl
    06. hazekang
    07. S11loop
    08. code (meeting us later at the jetty)
    09. John Teoh
    10.

    james, sorry to be a wt blanket.. but I've noticed that the skies have been cloudy.. in fact VERY CLOUDY for the past 2 weeks, even the moon could hardly shine through.

    I do hope you can get some pretty good trails if the sky clears up in time for the friday trails.

    I'll be watching Initial D on friday

    Good Luck! and Clear Skies!

    Well, the backup plan is for LE landscape shots. Anyway, let's see if it clears up by Sat night. I'm posting the NEA's station report pic which should self update each time this page is refreshed.

    Don't dispair, the clouds may clear overnight!

    Jetty But there is also the longkang and cliff face along the beach. Or for more Gothic look, there's the Seminary along 17th Ave.

    Latest weather report (i.e. stare at the sky) from Punggol Jetty -- STARS ARE VISIBLE. But clouds are still there, patchy skies. 50% chance it will be clear tomorrow.

    Latest weather report from Punggol Jetty (i.e. stare at the sky ): Bright & sunny!!! Scattered clouds -- hope it stays this way all night!

    BTW, since it rained this morning, the grounds may be muddy, so wear shoes that you'll not regret getting dirty.

    For those who are/will be late (>6.10pm) : We're having dinner at Punggol Plaza Food Court. Take the LRT from INSIDE the Punggol MRT, level 3, to CORAL EDGE station and you'll see it.

    Looking forward to meeting you all!
