Nice, its amasing what ISO speeds you can get with modern digital cameras, I was shooting today in the Blue John Cavern at 3200

That is stupendous. 👍

 

I'd have been very impressed if you'd said it was taken on a mountain in the Canaries. 🙂

In the revised version you can actually see the centre of the MW going a lovely sunset red 😎

Peter : i have a similar camera.

Yet if i stand in the garden and take the same exposure, night it turned in to day.

 

Is it all to do with having no light pollution in the first place ?

Light pollution would play a big part......

Thanks, i live in a pretty bad light polluted area in Derby.

3rd to 4th magnitude stars are a challenge most nights.

 

I've thought about CLS filters, but i'm guessing there is no substitute for a good dark sky ?

CLS filters work up to a point....but you cant beat dark skies

Wow, those A7's really are a dslr imager's dream come true. Come on Canon, get your finger out.

 

Terrific picture!

Its has the feel of a superbly built bit of electronics...but not the ruggedness of Canon or Nikon....if that makes sense. I have been a Nikon man for the past 25 years and was very difficult for me to buy Sony....Im glad i did. The only big downfall is battery life...they need to get it sorted.

Ah, yes I heard battery life a little short.

 

Is the "star eater" issue still a thing? Looking at your incredible image, I'd say no!

The new Mk 3s use the high capacity NP-FZ100 battery. Its good for around 700 shots so they say.

With it, i feel battery life is now no longer an issue.

 

It also increases the size of the body of it a bit, but i personally prefer the bigger grip.

The extra size also allows room for the image stabilisation stuff.
