Re: D800E night sky shots

Thanks very much Craig.

Ernie,

No I stick to F2.8 on an F2.8 lens. I do have some F1.8 or F1.4 lenses. I experiment in live view. You can see the chromatic aberration as you focus them. Generally this goes away at F2. So Samyang 24mm F1.4 lens I shoot at F2 or F2.2 and 85mm F1.8g around F2 or F2.2 or F2.8 as well before the chromatic aberration goes away.

Greg.
