  • Comment - Really noisy, like ISO 3200 noisy. Otherwise great, but so noisy... — Crisco 1492 (talk) 07:36, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Support - Just voted for this over at FPC. No technical data on the file. I'm guessing it had to be taken in low or available light as those mirrors would have been blinding under lights? Coat of Many Colours (talk) 08:47, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
    • Definitely in low-light conditions, but there are some tools that help reduce noise. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 09:41, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
      • Tripods. Also I'd expect better than at at 3200ISO on a modern DSLR. Might have been taken with one of those expensive medium format hasselblads that NASA uses (they don't perform very well in low light).©Geni (talk) 16:18, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Oppose per Crisco. Lovely picture. But the photos on Featured pictures are of really high quality - and this one is not quite there. Hafspajen (talk) 23:32, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
