Took this yesterday first time trying.
Equipment/Setting - T3i with 55-250mm at ISO 100, f/8, 1/125.
Post Process - White balance and cropped.


I have a suggestion: Post your Equipment/Setting that you took the pic with and the Post Process that you did, that way ppl can learn.

Got my EOS-MD adapter in the mail! Going to try out the f/1.4 50MM Rokkor-X tonight on my new tripod that also arrived biggrin.gif

Took this last night using the MD adapter and the old Rokkor-X 50mm.

I looked at this picture (everything else was bleh) and noticed that the light from this star actually took the shape of a 6 point star!!

Had to share it.

Got my 400mm today! Slapped on the Gen III 2x teleconverter and took a stab at the moon. So tired, so focusing was a pain, but for my first try I'm really happy!! I suppose I might see what the AF can do, I was manually doing everything.

I was working on getting Jupiter too, but that sucker and its moons were moving out across the live view screen!

If you're able to get AF when your max aperture is f/11, I'll eat my hat.
