    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    First, I know that some may scoff at this post as not suitable for this forum, or not photography, or whatever. They may be right! But what I say in my defense is that I was certainly having fun with my A7R!

    This summer I had the good fortune to spend a couple of months under fairly dark skies (Bortle class 2, for those who care). About 6 weeks before departure, I decided this might be the moment to attempt a bit of serious (amateur) astrophotography. At that point, I knew nothing about astronomy or astrophotography, nor had I ever looked through a telescope. After wading through thousands of forum posts and astronomy sites, I finally started assembling a telescope, mount, and astrophotography kit.

    Below is my first attempt at M101 – the pinwheel galaxy – taken from a blue zone (I didn’t feel like driving to the really dark site that night). Keep in mind this was the third time I actually looked through and used my telescope (or any telescope), and my second attempt at deep sky imaging. Same goes for using an equatorial tracking mount. I started from scratch in every respect, and had no help in the field. My setup includes: a Celestron EdgeHD 8" with reducer, Atlas Pro AZ/EQ-G tracking mount, TPI spreader, Starlight feathertouch micro focuser, and Sony A7R and A6000 for prime-focus AP. This gear (especially the scope) is unforgiving for an imaging beginner, but I really wanted to dabble in planetary at some point, so had to start somewhere. Hopefully I'll be able to add a nice refractor (500-900mm fl) in the next year or two, though they can get quite expensive!


    For the composite shown here, I used about 80, 30-second unguided (but still tracked) subexposures (subs in astrophotography speak) from an unmodded A7R, half at ISO 1600 and half at ISO 2000. The .7x reducer was also used. Processing was done in DeepSkyStacker/Photoshop, as the premier astrophotography processing application, PixInsight, makes my head hurt.

    Obviously, more frames (subs), better processing, and more experience will help me in the future. But I'm still reasonably pleased with this result, considering how new I am to the hobby and all that it entails.

    It may sound like a special form of punishment to attempt this endeavor, but as I said, I found it thrilling and fun. Cheers.

    Doing some experimenting with my new Batis 85 lens on A7RII. Interestingly, I did some controlled tests on sharpness and found, (with my lens anyway), that wide open in the central part of the image, test image is as sharp as at optimum apertures. A pleasant surprise...... Eleanor

    I mentioned that in my review on the Batis 85 and on my trip proved to be the most valuable lens in my bag. Killer centrally
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Thank you. When the sun starts setting, we got nice color in the high desert of Albuquerque NM. This shot a few hrs earlier wouldn't have had these crazy tones.

    Then I also believe the cheapo Sony 28mm f/2 prime has fantastic character. I think this lens is superior to my more expensive Zeiss 35mm f/2.8. In fact I am looking to sell the Zeiss 35mm.

    I was at the Hemingway Memorial where a very spoiled 2 year old chocolate lab had an entire tribe of human handlers fooled into thinking he was totally helpless LOL It was pretty hysterical. The humans were arguing about what to do and who would get wet. Happened to have the legendary Nikkor AIS 300/2.8 EDIF at the ready.

    Of course about 3 yards downstream was a low bank and easy exit.

    I'm just in love with this incredible lens, which was produced until 2005, and cost 1450USD in 1985! It was a pro mainstay in the golden age of press photography, and makes the usual nikon build seem very very cheap. It is renowned for sharpness WO, superb bokeh, and very rich color rendition. Those are all hand held BTW, which is no problem with such a fast lens. A fingertip is enough on the internal focus, like scrolling your iPhone


    300/2.8 ais by unoh7, on Flickr

    I paid 625 including shipping, and it's easy to find a nice one in the 800 range, which is just a steal I think. Finally after trying many lenses I am happy at 300

    There is also an excellent Canon nFD 200/2.8L of the same era which sells for near identical prices. But it's already one of those puke white barrels which is both too self satisfied and loud for my taste

    Tom, PixInsight is a programme worth spending time on, I think. I tried the trial version. It is quite advanced but with lots of possibilities.

    Thanks for sharing your experience!

    Hello all!

    It's fantastic to return to lots of fabulous images (and exciting new cameras) after a long hiatus in the Arctic. I spent the month of August in East Greenland and experienced some of the most rewarding photography and the most incredible light I've ever had the privilege to enjoy. When conditions were right, golden hour lasted all night - a photographer's dream! Here an example - more to come over the coming days and weeks...

    Best,

    Ron

    You're right of course. PixInsight seems to be an unequaled tool when it comes to processing these types of images. I just wish the developers had made the UI a bit friendlier - it makes the Sony menu systems positively intuitive by comparison!

    My respect for the Batis 25mm grows every time I use it. Its abilities far exceed mine.

    Fun with a A7S and a Jupiter 9 (85mm) lens. Last of the summer wine gathering. I think they were all at f2. This lens for £50 quid or so, or a Batis.....

    Tom, you are very welcome! I'm delighted that you like them. Yes, 'Subtle Blues' turned out very nicely. The light was very special when I captured the image - incredibly soft, yet with lots of definition. Hard to describe...

    Ron and Joe; Stunning images from the very northern hemisphere.

    This is with a rather rare Ricoh mirror lens I had laying around for a long time. First time I use it actually.

    Inspiration; think of Monet

    Subtle blues is my favorite too. Great light, great tones and color. Plus the composition. Everything fall right in place

    Did you mean in-camera panos or stitched images?

    What were your settings?

    Here are a few snaps taken en route to the dark site mentioned above.











    And here's a single 30-sec exposure of the M13 globular cluster, taken at ISO 8000. This is what a focal length of 2032mm will bring to you.

That shutter speed choice and timing just make this shot sing. There aren't a lot of landscapes where you get the sense of any 'decisive moment', but even though it's subtle, I really feel it here.

    P.S. Love this whole little series.

    Thanks for your most valuable input, Hubbard! Before capturing this image, we were motoring towards this location by Zodiac, facing the sunset/sunrise (hard to know what to call it when it never gets dark ) over an almost flat calm sea. Speeding across the gentle ripples on the surface was an absolute spectacle, each and every one consisting of concentric circles of red, orange an blue - hypnotising!

    Edit: I chose to freeze the motion because I felt very strongly that the clarity, the crispness of this scene needed to be preserved.

    Sounds fantastic. Thanks for bringing some of that gorgeous light back with you for us to see!

    The pictures in this group suggest to me that we have reached a turning point. Genuine MF digital quality in evidence from the A7RII, talented photographers unleashing their creative potential.

    Every time I visit I see something special, inspiring.

    I fully agree with you, Quentin. And I would like to add that unleashing our creative potential at this level of image quality has never been easier. The IQ from an A7R/A7RII combined with the right lenses ist mind-boggling, and the package can be extremely small (and I dare say very affordable for what it is). I consider myself very privileged to live in these times...

    We walked around the wetlands at Sapsucker Woods after lunch and captured these shots with the A7RII+FE28/2.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    Enjoying my two Batis lenses. The house on Main Street Breckenridge shot with the 25 and the Aspens shot with 85 at dusk last evening during my walk with my dog on the trail by my house in Colorado. By the way digilloyd just gave the Sony A7RII a horrible review for "field use". I am totally enjoying my A7RII. Nothing is perfect but it is working so well for me...perfect weight, grip, customized buttons...etc etc. Will I be happy with the uncompressed RAW option....you bet, but otherwise I'm totally enjoying the ease of use and quality this camera offers.

    Thank you. I love your images!
    Well said Eleanor. The A7r2 is such an enjoyable tool to use, I couldn't agree more with your assessment.
    BTW, who is this digilloyd?
    With best regards, K-H.

    Field use seems just fine to me, even in deepest Africa.
