  1. Thought you only bought stuff mate? Thought you were allergic to selling anything
  2. I can't wait to get mine! Great images Adam! Regards Alan
  3. Price drop to £250!!! Brilliant lens for astro a bargain at this price!! Image below taken with this lens... Alan
  4. This is way better than mine!! I think mine was tilt if I'm honest due to it being a Canon body but I'm happy enough with the 200 mm for 2.8 I replaced it with.... Regards Alan I'm no expert but I could live with it!
  5. Something I never knew. We are all constantly learning in this hobby... Alan
  6. This is one of my images taken with a modded 450D..... One side looks in focus the other side isn`t. This was @ f5.6
  7. According to most users on the net this lens should be usable @ f4. I`ve seen some great images taken with them!!! I assume this is the Nikon 180 f 2.8 ED? Mine was the slightly newer version. Are you using stop down rings i don`t see any diffraction spikes? Alan
  8. I had the same lens and the same issue. I was however using a Canon 450d with it. Even at f5.6 i had problems. This lens gets rave reviews for astrophotography on the web. I sent mine back to the seller on Ebay and replaced it with a Canon 200 mm f2.8 USM which i`m over the moon with. I don`t think your problems are as bad as mine though. Over half the frame was unusable. I think an element was misplaced Alan
  9. Star Adventurer / Tripod / DSLR and telephoto lens. Thats what i use... Alan
  10. Hello More of a lens question than a camera one. Can anyone make me or point me in the direction of a bahnitov mask for my Canon lens? Its the Canon 200 mm f2.8 USM mark 1 version with the lens hood built in. I`m really struggling getting good focus even with live view on my camera. Thanks for looking Alan
