Recommended Posts

Anyone use this lens with a crop sensor ? What sort of targets get you get in the field of view ?

Just got a 300mm F4 for AP and to use for normal daytime photography but looking to get a couple more lens that I can use for AP and normal. I do also have a 50mm prime.

Use this with a QHY163M - fov is about 6 degrees on the long side. You'll get a bit more with an APS-C sized sensor. Found it needs stopping down to about f4 for sharpest edge stars.

I use that lens on my Canon 700d.

Things I have had ago at include the Witches head nebula (NGC 1909), Spaghetti (Sh2-240), IC1396, Virgo cluster of galaxies, Lobster claw area (Sh2-157).

There are a couple of examples in my album - not particularly good and could easily be improved, but imaging at 4 and a bit arc secs per pixel is quite forgiving of small guiding errors 🙂

California Nebula and the whole Veil Nebula fit as well.
