5D Mark II + Zeiss 21mm + lots of stars!
Apr 20, 2012

I took my new Zeiss 21mm f2.8 out to play last night and captured a huge number of stars here in New Zealand. Each one is ISO 3200 and f2.8. The first photo was 20 seconds, and the other two 30 seconds each. Processed with Lightroom 4.

I love how you can just turn the focus to the end of the ring and know all the stars will be in focus. There's no wiggle room like at the end like in my Canon lenses. Of course there's no auto focus either, but I really look forward to seeing what landscape shots I can get with the Zeiss.

This is my 3rd go at star photos in 4 years, so any suggestions would be great It ended up being great timing though, as not 2 minutes after I took that last photo the entire sky clouded over.
