BORG Super Astrographs & Fujifilm X-trans Sensor and Image Processor

I had two-day meeting with BORG in Japan end of last month to finish all of preparation for new scopes – 107FL F3.9ED and 90FL F3.9ED. And I’m now doing final reviews mechanically and optically just before launching. Originally we have scheduled end of this month. But unfortunately carbon fiber tubes are behind the schedule. So we are expecting to start shipping some time next month. And yes, I will announce each package price as soon as possible. Please patiently waiting.


And now Fujifilm X-T1 is most favorite camera to me. So I played it around with 107FL after reviewing last night. It’s same target though. I wished to have more time to shoot.

One of reasons why I like X-T1 is the performance of Fuji’s proprietary X-trans sensor and the image processor. I’m feeling the camera seems to have the pleasing(I don’t say “wide”) dynamic range. I’m not sure if it is right numerically. I’m just feeling. My guess is the image processor might do the digital development automatically to simulate into the film. I might be wrong. Anyway, the core of M8 isn’t saturated much. This is why I enjoy imaging with this camera these days, more than a cooled 6D which is a noiseless camera though. Again this is the result of non-cooled and non-modified camera.  This result should encourage Fujifilm users to aggressively point to the deep sky!

Usually I set Dynamic Range 400. But let me see any difference with DR Auto.

I’m not sure I can do astro works tonight.


Brush fire looks coming closer and more spreading out I think the Polaris must be totally blocked by the smoke from my backyard.
