When I show my larger prints with stars, ones that I shot with this lens, people are all agog. Comments people make about them use words like "masterpiece" and "wonderful" and the images - rare, beautiful, evocative - bring a lot of enthusiasm from viewers. I had dinner one night after having a few starscapes from this lens printed; the waiter saw them, asked if he could show the other staff, I saw a waitress taking pictures of my prints with her cell phone, and the manager asked if I could sell him one with Mount Rainier in the background.

Obviously these people don't get out much.

The reaction from people who enjoy photography is night and day from the "it can't be done" of this forum.

You can do anything you want to. Lower your standards enough and you could shoot those stars with an iPhone. It can be done.
