However. It's nice and dark up there, with the worst noise pollution visible in the two shots above. That's the glow from Warkworth/Snells Beach.
The shot on the left is taken with the EF 28-80mm Lens, aperture 3.4, the shot on the right Sigma Super-Wide FD 24mm, aperture 2.8.
Trouble with the fast lens is how fungal it is (the stars are actually in sharp focus.
So a small success, a nice dark place to shoot, and to transport scopes up to. Also gained a burning desire to procure a faster lens, as the 18-55 is nice, but could be a lot nicer. When I get more $$$ I think a fast 50 might be the order of the day.
Unless of course y'all want to donate something? :)
Ok, just asking!
Here's a pic of the hunter to leave you with.
