  • Created discussion thread Cape Town Moon
    Long holiday in Africa almost over.  Played around with Moon shots on the trip, and almost a full moon.  Curious as to thoughts. Canon 6D2 / 100-400L ii with 1.4iii fully zoomed. ISO 100 / f/11 / ...
  • Greetings from Nambia.  Had to scale this down because the internet is terrible, but wanted to upload one of my first ever astro shots.  This was taken in Okongima on my 6D2 with the Rokinon 14 ...
  • Yes. Rokinon. The SP version. Think I'll be taking this one to Africa.
  • Here you go as best I could do to represent 100 and 400% Crop. Pictures are in the order of 0% Crop (2.8 then 2.4), 100% crop (2.8 then 2.4) and 400% Crop (2.8 then 2.4). And again - these were ...
  • Spectacular!  Do you mind sharing equipment / settings (both exposure and time lapse)?  It would be greatly appreciated.
  • So I returned the 14 f/2.8 and got the 14 f/2.4.  I tried to get the same setup (lighting is significantly different) and I used the 10x zoom and then confirmed using the camera's focus (e.g. it ...
  • Understood.  Unfortunately not.  This will be my first attempt at anything astro related, and outside of trying to get my hands on a decent lens (next attempt is the 14 f/2.4) I will not have any ...
  • Any quick tips on the setup for a 100-400?  I'm assuming no TC for Astro and 100mm to get whatever aperture I can. But I would think that I would get terrible star trails for any shutter length ...
  • Roger, Thank you very much for all the information and suggestions.  I will be with some people who have done this all before, so I am hopeful that there will be no issues.  I did just pick up a ...
  • Itinerary is basically: (1) Cape Town for three days with a drive down to L'Agulhas to hit the southernmost tip of Africa. Somewhere along that journey there's supposed to be where the two oceans tides ...
  • Created discussion thread South Africa and Nambia June/July
    I am going to Africa with my kids for a safari, and in addition to the daytime photography, I'm hoping to get my feet wet with some Astrophotography, as we'll be in the literal middle of nowhere ...
  • I'm not. The lens will be going back. Found a 14/2.4 and 24/1.4 both of which seem to have better  ratings, some electric feedback and are a good price. Unfortunately I'm not going to have time to ...
  • Ok - These are on a tripod in the best light we are getting here in South Florida shooting down the street. The shots are at the "3", "2", Vertical infinity line and absolute infinity. Curious as ...
  • Got my lens and playing a little bit around inside.  Techniques on confirming infinity focus would be appreciated.  I see that the ring has 10ft as the last number before infinity, so does that ...
  • Getting my 14 / 2.8 today.  We'll see about the quality.  I am sure that the 2.4 is much better, but also 1k more, and unfortunately I'm normally in a light saturated place, so I'll have minimal ...
  • Please help a manual focus newbie. What is the best technique to marking the infinity focus. I assumed that I would be able to just turn the focus knob all the way.
  • Was looking at that one. Didn't realize that the nifty had bad coma. Much appreciated!
  • Created discussion thread Astrophotography - 6D2
    Heading to Africa and will have some nights in the darkest places supposedly. Has anyone used the nifty fifty on the 6D2?  Not sure if I really need wider. Will also have an ultra wide sigma, but ...
  • Totally understand the concern and the dock was bought.  I've been spending a ton on gear and couldn't justify 2700 for another lens. With the dock I paid less than 1/4. I will see definitely tune ...
  • I'm glad I was able to generate so much stimulating conversation. Although I kind of feel a little bit silly in that the one I was actually thinking of is the much cheaper 12-24 (non-Art) and not ...
