Contrail Spotting

This is something I enjoy doing while waiting for planes when spotting, I take pictures of planes waaay up high usually when they have contrails, or else they're hard to see. I use the same camera and lens I use when at the airport, T2i and 55-250mm, there is a lot of cropping and editing. Sometimes I wait for a specific plane because I can use the site flightaware.com to find out whats going over my house.

Here are a few of my pictures and I invite everybody to post their own pictures too.


United 757 200





Qantas a330 (200 or 300?)




Korean Air Cargo 747 400F Registration HL7434




Emirates 777 200




Delta 757 200 "Sky Team"

Re: Contrail Spotting

My 250mm isn't the best, but I am cropping it as much as I can, magnifying it around 20x times after the original 250mm.

What I mean is that I am cropping it a lot. The original picture size is 5184x3456 pixels, but I crop it all the way to 1200x800 without resizing at all. So this makes it around 20 times magnification because 1200/5184 is around .20. You can do this with any of the basic picture editing software. The picture is then very grainy so then I use Photoshop.

It's sort of a measurement of zoom, for digital camera's, you're familiar with optical zoom, with DSLR's it's mm. I saw you got a new camera the L310, "The 25 mm wide-angle to 525 mm super-telephoto range of a 21x optical zoom NIKKOR lens...", it has more zoom then any of ours!

Re: Contrail Spotting

On bright sunny days with not a cloud in the sky, you can find me on my back terrace with binoculars in one hand an an ice cold beer in the other looking straight up in the sky! I'm glad I'm not the only one!
