Can't Open Nikon D3000 .nef Files With Capture NX2?

                                                                        .

Apologies for the strange title. It's for others who are baffled as to why Nikon's Capture NX2 program won't open .nef files from a D3000 SLR. Rest assured, upgrading to version 2.2.7 fixes that, no problem. Go Here to get it. Be sure to install 2.2.6 first. I think the lack of interagency communication involved in the problem is astonishing and I hope heads rolled.

                 



Shot this photo with a Nikon D3000 DSLR and an Orion 80mm f/7.5 Refractor telescope as a prime focus lens. ISO 200, shutter speed 1/25 second.

This pic is for all of you who doubt the moon is made of green cheese. I greened up this shot with Capture NX2, then I cropped it and busted down the rez with PhotoShop CS3. All in a day's work. Thanks fer stopping by.

Werewolves of Arizona

Shot these photos with a Nikon D3000 DSLR and an Orion 80mm f/7.5 Refractor telescope as a prime focus lens. ISO is set to 200.

Full moon fairly high in the sky. Shutter speed is 1/320 second.
                     

Moon is now fairly low in the sky and getting more orange. Shutter speed is 1/250 second.
                                   

Setting moon. Shutter speed is 1/25 second. Heat waves really distorted this pic.
