    Taken from 1000 miles away; 16 hours from sunrise to moonset compressed
    into one minute:

    what do you mean by taken 1000 miles away ?

    The camera is wifi connected and accessed from a remote location- not a
    lens that "sees" for 1000 miles :)

    pity I might have brought one of those...

    But I did have a lens that "sees" further around 239,000 miles when I took a few photos of the moon :)

    How about this one:

    Also, last week I was talking to the head of security at a place where I
    do some work. He was talking about cameras that have a 180 or
    360-degree view and record at some ludicrously-high resolution 24-7. The
    result is a recording where somebody can joy-stick zoom and pan after
    the fact.

    I'm *really* looking forward to that technology becoming available at
    consumer prices.

    In my camera store days, I had a little lady come in with her husband's SLR
    and she inquired about that "funny little symbol that looks like the number
    eight on it side". When I began to elplain about the concept of infinity and
    lens focus she stopped me with a very puzzled look on her face, paused in
    thought, and almost shouted out: "INFINITY?!? Is THAT farther than the
    MOON???

    The interesting thing is the pattern of line shadows on the ground as the sun moves. Also, this is where paranoid types spend 20 times a day, looking at images of the inside of their vacant house via their smart phones...

    Infinity is a funny little concept, luckily for photgraphers it's easy it's the furthest that the lens can focus, but the maths version of infinity is more complex.
