The night of 26th of July I visited a gorgeous beach called Porto Pino in the South West of Sardinia: this must have been one of the most amazing sights of the Milky Way of my whole life, it was so huge, so bright, so glowing, I was totally blown away!! Yep, dark sites truly make a HUGE difference! Thanks for watching! Single shots taken with an old Canon 5D, ISO 1600, 30 seconds. ancient Pentacon 29mm F/2.8, on a 20 euro chinese tripod
Hi, does anyone still use a classic Canon 5D (first version) ??? I own a few nice and sharp 35mm-format prime lenses that I would love to use in daylight (portraits, buildings, landscape etc) so I thought to get a second hand full frame camera that I might also use for astronomy once or twice a year when the weather man approves it (mainly for wide-fields and some large DSO's) and I found some inexpensive 5D's and I was wondering if anyone is still using them and how do they compare with more modern crop / APS-C cameras. My main camera is a Nikon D7000 (a fantastic camera!), but my old 35mm lenses won't focus to infinity on Nikon unless I use some cr@ppy glass adapter that degrades the image. I also don't like at all that the pictures are cropped and much more narrow and I cannot afford proper wide and fast Nikon lenses for my D7000. So considering that I don't need any AF, Backyard EOS or any fancy digital-era things, that my budget is restricted plus I really need to go on holidays soon (making the budget even smaller) I thought the 5D could be good enough as a first digital full frame camera to play with but I haven't found any convincing information on using it for astronomy and being a pretty old model I'm still not sure if it would be a disappointment, although I see that, for daylight, some experienced photographers obtained great results. Any input will be appreciated! :-)
