    Astronomy is my other hobby (kinda). Haven't used my scope much in a long time, but starting to get back into it.
    At least you took high school physics. I once read that well over 95% of high school graduates/attendees never took a class in physics. The same for advanced math.

    That you know of the term Rayleigh Scattering is a complimentary comment to your educational achievements.

    The reason that illuminated celestial bodies appear redder at and near the horizon has to do with the wavelengths of light rays passing through the Earth's atmosphere and the size of the molecules making up the atmosphere. The atmosphere's molecules are of a size that they scatter/reflect the shorter wavelength light rays that appear blue and violet to us more than those which are longer wavelengths and appear as red. As the light rays must travel through much more atmosphere when the image is at or near the horizon than when the image is higher in the sky, more of the shorter wavelength photons are scattered and don't reach our eyes or camera sensors. The red appearing wavelengths are less affected and more of these photons reach us, causing the image of the object to appear even more red. When there is small particulate suspension in the sky, often even more blue light is scattered. Although more red may be scattered and reflected, it is still to a lesser extent, causing even more of the sky to appear in a reddish hue.

    And to keep at the theme of this thread, I recently added the following equipment to my stable of accessories: Mag Mod Widlife Kit.

    Now I must figure how to store and travel with it and also keep it away from my storage media since it's got a set of fairly strong magnets associated with it. It won't do much good to have well-illuminated subjects in my photos if the photos are damaged by magnetic fields from the Mag Mod!

    I like that it has the dials and also a view finder. I always thought these cameras would be fun for walking around. I wonder if I could get used to the side.

    I am really interested in compositing, but it's more than just pasting images onto a background. The lighting and color temperature have to match along with the correct perspective. After watching a number of videos by Ben Shirk, Joel Grimes, Matt Kloskowski, Phlearn, and others to really grasp an understanding of the process, I purchased a preowned copy of this book.

    Since wildlife photography has become my favorite genre, particularly critters in motion, I decided that I had to have a D500. My D7500 has been my go to camera for this type of shooting up until now and it's no slouch. That said, things like the continuous shooting speed and buffer depth of the D500 make it irresistible to me.

    I have several cameras and I try use all of them regularly - easier said than done . Adding another makes it that much harder so something had to go. When I compare how often I've used the various bodies, my D750 gets used the least by a big margin.

    Long story short, I traded my D750 and several full frame lenses for a lightly used D500 body (~9K shutter count) and more than ample cash to fund a proper set of relevant accessories. In addition, I already have a couple of telephoto lenses - Nikon AF-P FX 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR and Sigma 100-400mm f/5.0-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary - that I've used and like.

    I'm hoping to have the D500 in hand by the end of next week...woohoo!!

    I am sure you will love the D500 for critters. However, I would have kept the D750 and and unloaded the redundent D7500.

    I've been agonizing over an arca swiss ballhead - although I'm not a big arca swiss fan, there are reasons why one would be beneficial. So after spending a lot of time comparing brands and reading reviews, I settled on the Desmond Demon DB-44 ballhead. Eventually I might swap out the clamp and replace it with a locking lever clamp - either by 3 Legged Thing or Really Right Stuff. The ratings indicate it's pretty solid with many excellent Amazon reviews (as well as on B&H).
