Cygnus Region on a 50mm lens


Recommended Posts

Second shot from Tuesday night, a closer view of The North American Nebula and Sadr Region.

22 frames of 120 seconds @ 1600 iso on the Canon 600D with a 50mm Olympus Zuiko lens @ F2.8

Worth looking at the full size file, these old Zuiko lenses are great for astrophotography.

Very Nice :D

The Zuiko's were well respected in their day and being designed for 35mm (full frame) they tend to work really well on the smaller APS-C sized fitted to some DSLR's...

I have a couple of Super Takuma's and Fujinon primes which I really should give an outing...

Absolutely superb...! I'd like to try one of these over the summer, but I can never pin the focus down well enough - Can I ask what aids (if any) you used to focus this, and also if you used any LP filter (or was this taken from one of those rare fairly dark sites?!)

Hi Andy

I focused using the live view on the Canon 600D and was using a CLS clip filter to reduce light pollution, it was shot at the same location as the 24mm image, the Rollright stones north of Chipping Norton during a CNAAG members observng session.

Cheers Mel - I also have a LP clip filter, but, for some reason, find it really tricky focusing with liveview off the back of the camera. I can get away with using my Equinox 80 B mask on my 180mm lens, but anything with less FL and I flounder - I did try making a Y mask, but the spars obviously weren't thin enough. I'm thinking APT might be able to help though...
