Description

Used an 'ordinary' Canon EF 50mm lense at f3.5. My first picture of the milky way (Deneb, cygnus, high in the sky) from light polluted skies is a fact. Now that I know it can be done, I may save up for a nice ED lens...and i'll try f4.5 to see if eggs remain a problem with this lense :-)
