    Bro, check out the unusual web site..this year firing span wider..so i think wide angle lens or maybe even fisheye..location wise..i think must check with the metrological stations..check the wind direction at 9pm for tml..900 rounds ..think smoke will kill all ur shots if stand at wrong position..

    Oh really, that's serious. Will the smokes/dusts destroy lens and cameras also?

    not to that extend..it may cause patches of overexposure smoke..

    But my widest is 28mm which equal to 44.8mm on a 1.6X body.

    Umm, experts, I'm going to attempt to capture multiple bursts with a long exposure. Any tips on exposure? Will be on tripod with remote cable.
    Approx. f/16 - f/22 at 8 - 10secs, ISO 100.

    Anyone know is this place (red cross one, NOT red star) accessible ?
    Would it be a good place to shoot?

    That side (the red cross) has several condominiums (above the highway), then there are several tracks/trails going down to the empty land. I guess it's accessible.

    like what bro tqviet0327 said,
    there's some track link to condor @ Tanjung Rhu under ECP.
    Can see tha small track from the street directory (not online website),
    but after crossing the ECP, is there a way to go further ?
