reason # 43 for the 12-40mm/2.8 - Astral Photography
3 months ago

I am no more than an enthusiast, but I enjoy attempting to snag astral shots when I can.

I had many reasons to grab the 12-40mm, but among them was the f 2.8 aperture at 12mm to give me just that extra bit of light and a somewhat wide field. With a bit of LR tweaking, I'm quite please with this capture of the milkyway.

alternatively, I used my 7.5 mm f 3.5 FE to grab this shot. It's not the best composition, but is an example of how f 3.5 (even with 30 sec exposure vs 25 sec at 12mm) doesn't grab as much detail as f 2.8
