    You better bring more flash. at lesat 10 580 EX IIs, cos the lighting is bad on pluto I heard. The sun doesn't come up too often. Bump up your ISO if required.

    No need dry box, no moisture at all.

    Quite cold, so might want to bring a couple of heaters.

    Oh BTW, by the time we reach Pluto, our lens and body is already a few generation away so you wont be able to get good photos. Canon will have 1Dsmk9 while Nikon will have come out with D9x. Suprisingly Clubsnap also have started manufacturing their own line of camera and lens as is the leading camera manufacturer. The Admin finally decided to pool all the talents here to design the ultimate camera. But dont worry about the technology difference. CS can email you the blue print for its latest line oc camera and you can manufacture it in Pluto on your own. I heard they are coming up with liquid lens. It works like the lens in your eyes.
    You must bring some cat food though

    Or catnip

    For my cats

    And maybe some friends for them

    A dog will do

    The second hit was this very thread. Good stuff. Your "GOOGLE" advice just made me revert to my very own thread. How is that helpful? Obviously this "GOOGLE IS YOUR BEST FRIEND" nonsense isn't very helpful when it's referring me to my own thread is it?

    From the third hit, I found my camera:

    http://www.spacedaily.com/reports/Pl...Light_999.html

    This week the Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) opened its protective cover and took its first image in space, of Messier 7, a star cluster in our Milky Way galaxy.

    LORRI is a panchromatic high-magnification imager, consisting of a telescope with an 8.2-inch (20.8-centimeter) aperture that focuses visible light onto a charge-coupled device (CCD). It's essentially a digital camera with a large telephoto telescope, only fortified to operate in the cold, hostile environs near Pluto. LORRI has no color filters or moving parts; operators take images by pointing the LORRI side of the spacecraft at their target. The instrument's silicon carbide construction kept its mirror focused even after the its temperature plunged by more than 120 degrees F (50 degrees C) once the door opened. LORRI is now approximately at the same temperature it will be when takes close-up images of Pluto nine years from now.
    8.2 INCH APERTURE!!!
