  3. Sky atlas 2000 deluxe laminated edition A3.

    Sadly selling off my astro gear, getting out less and less but this is probably one of the hardest things to let go.

    I've had this for about 8 years now  and it still in very good condition and has seen many nights under the darkest of skys the uk has got. 

    Spirals are still good and just a couple of corners are slightly damaged but not broke. 


    Kind regards

    WOW!, A real and superb Widefield  Astro. Image. I do appreciate Deep Sky objects in all their glory,
    but I feel great when looking at a picture of a star filled night sky. It takes a good  Camera and lens  to  produce  a show like  this.

    You selected a fine part of our home  Galaxy to expose your cameras sensor  to Daniel. 
    Can only be described as Excellent. :icon_salut::icon_salut:.


    Thanks Ron im slowly fine tuning my setup, the next step is gather a few hours worth of data this good on this composition. just need that holy grail night now :BangHead:

    Stunning image, I need to get me a Sony too! considering I’m using an original 5D. It must be 10 years old now at least, I’m sure the Sony will leave it for dead.

    The Sony's are wonderful to use, i shot canon for a few years and moved to Sony after the lack of features from canon.  albeit 42.4MP on a FF sensor is overkill it works really well for my daytime landscape work and its a cracking astro camera.

    not bad wide open like. i rekon stopped down to F2.2 and tracked this lens would be a belter. wish i had captured more data

    I shot it wide open to see what aberrations it had. You can clearly see it has a vignette but that might of been the lens hood. But still very impressive. I wish I had more time to use it. However I have access to it anytime so next time I fancy stopping it down and doing a full night with it.


    Last night i had front row seats to the best show in town. 
    North Wales has some of the darkest skies in the UK. hence why i spend alot of time in the area.

    There was meant to be a chance of the first decent auroa of the season but it never really came, so i focused on some other aspects of the night sky.

    I had a Sigma Imaging UK 14mm F1.8 on loan for the evening and i was eager to see what this lens could do after hearing great things about it. 

    Nothing could of prepared me for the back of screen moment after the first exposure. What a beautifully crafted lens.


    Shot wide open at F1.8 

    ISO 1250
