E-M5 does hand held infrared and tripod astro with 12mm lens in the Aussie outback

I took the E-M5 to outback Australia last week and did a few astro tests (unfortunately, only tripod mounted just to test the 12mm lens), and hand held IR tests with an unmodified camera with Hoya R72 filter on the Olympus 12mm lens.

see my blog posts:

The E-M5 was fantastic, the 12mm lens brilliant for hand held IR and useful for wide angle astro but has lots of aberrations for stars as is typical of most wide angle lenses.

An example IR shot:
