First Light with 35mm Takumar

Recommended Posts

Been a while since I picked this lens up from @Lockie - sorry its taken so long to use it properly.

Quick test with a rather battered 450d on a StarAdventurer last night. The double cluster and Perseus area. This lens fits in a vast area of sky, and is pretty sharp across whole field of view. Pretty awesome for a lens which has seen more life than most living beings! Once I get some better framing opportunities and nice nights, this should produce some cracking images.

20 x 2 mins. Scaled down to a sensible jpg size, so original is much crisper actually.

Yes, this was at a rather sedate F8. Yet to go down to the possible F3.5.

There's a lot of stars there. I really like that. Cracking image.
