Re: Using the Fuji XF56 & XF50 for astrophotography

In terms of gaps, the Samyang 135mm f/2 seems to have a great reputation amongst astrophotographers and it's available in Fuji mount. It's been on my wish list for awhile now. Agree that the 60 is a little short.

I'm basically tossing up between the Samyang / Rokinon 135mm f/2 or just skipping to the next step which is a small refractor telescope like the Redcat 51 or ED80 and making up the camera up to that. But then I will most likely need a better mount that a star tracker...and the costs build quickly!
