On Orion Nebula in the Astrophotography challenge (11 comments in total)

What happened to the stars in the right upper corner? Seem very elongated when compared to the others?

Thanks for explaining. The HST false color palette with line filters is standard but the locally different stars made me wonder. As you said its an expermiment of creative postprocessing... Good luck!

Very strange combination of sharp and blurry, saturated and "gray" stars. I as a (professional) astronomer don't understand how this picture was combined of different exposures...

On Canon EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Preview preview (80 comments in total)

Just got the e-mail from amazon.de that I will receive my 11-22 on Wednesday! Hurray!!!! Guess what, we have Robbie Williams tickets for Wednesday evening and on the ticket it says: "professional cameras not allowed". Perfect for my new little "m" looking as harmless as it gets... ;)

In reply to:

Sabaki: Question: is the AF performance exclusively linked to Live View or is there improvement for those (birders/wild life/action) who shoot through the View Finder?
Also, if one shoots macro using Live View, will the new AF lock more successfully on say a bug?

Thanks guys and apologies if the questions seem idiotic

... for frozen bugs, yabokkie! Sabaki, I mostly use AF or sometimes fix the focus and select the focal plane in liveview. Rails dont work for me out in the field with living insects and wind.

Very nice composition! What lenses did you use? Have you info on the individual exposures?

PS work? Hard to understand lighting geometry - both moon and balloon are spheres illuminated by the same light source (sun) and should show similar shadowing...

On Canon announces EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM wide zoom article (55 comments in total)

Fantastic new option. I was really waiting for such a lens. Especially for landscape work it will let my little eos-m shine. I use it mostly to have it with me every day and to complement my 5DIII with long telephotos when doing wildlife.

I use the android app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.chainfire.dslrcontroller&hl=de a lot to control my 5DIII and 5DII. It works like a charm and critical manual focusing on my samsung galaxy note works nicely in live mode. Also timed sequences is easy. I use it mainly for astrophotography.... Have a look!

When using it on the new 5d III with the newest firmware 1.1.3. but also in the newest dpp there is no lens data available in order to correct vigneting and the rest. Hope that this is updated soon! (Aside this I love this lens!)

In reply to:

Franz Kerschbaum: I can skip this one, its only minor pollishing from the TS3, which still makes me happy everytime I use it!

I used it for 3 snokelling vacations and 2 skiing ones. To avoid condensation I always changed battery and card in airconditioned environments (snorkeling). For applications in the winter it is good to change card and battery outside in cold air and not to do this in house. By this you always avoid to have warm water saturated air inside that condeses when temperature drops (in water or during skiing).

For the rest I have my DSLRs.

8 times a 110s image stacked afterwards. It was mounted on an Astrtrac http://www.astrotrac.com/ . The lens used is the 135mm 1:2 L.
