    F1515 was last review in 2015 is closing in on its mandatory 5 year review. This work group will review and submit any updates deemed needed. Changing the time exposure is understandable under some conditions but the exposure time must be reported. I am voting negative for that reason. If the actual exposure time is reported I will consider removing the negative. After a conversation with Dale, it was agreed that we should find his negative persuasive and make the requested change. We offer the following changes. Record the hours of exposure (please note that the method never stated that actual hours must be recorded). Also, when describing the lightsource it is important to include the filters used. This information is also added.
