In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at a silky multimedia presentation, Raw Photo Processor, the highest resolution photos of the night sky ever captured and how some smart kids did the right thing.

  • Riding the New Silk Road is a silky multimedia presentation by James Hill for the N.Y. Times. Don't worry, though, all you have to do is scroll down the page, following the map of the road to enjoy it. Marvelous.
  • Andrey Tverdokhleb has released his free Raw Photo Processor 4.7.1 with support for the Nikon D3200/D7100/P7700, Sony RX1, Fuji X-E1/X-S1/X100S/X20, Panasonic LX7/FZ200/LF1, Pentax K-5 II, Canon 6D/1D C/S100, Olympus XZ-2/XZ-10 and Samsung NX300.
  • Astronomers at the University of Arizona, Arcetri Observatory in Italy, and at the Carnegie Observatory have been developing a new camera with higher resolution for over 20 years and has now shot the Highest Resolution Photos Ever of the Night Sky with one in the high desert of Chile at the Magellan telescope.
  • "We found your phone," is the chorus in this Greek drama of a lost smartphone. Actually it's a video on Instagram posted by the kids who found the phone and had a little fun saying so.

More to come...
