To get the best astro you need to be way away from any real light sources.

Nice shot. It shows me the lens will do what I'm hoping for. Looks like you captured Andromeda (M31) in the upper left.

Keep on Astro topic with this lens, these days i see one so bright star in the sky, is it a star or is it a satellite station? How can i capture that bright star with my not so long lenses?

Jupiter rises at around 6pm, Mars at around midnight and Saturn soon thereafter. So, you'll be able to see the 3 finest planetary objects these nights. You'll need a long lens to get details of planets. The short lenses can only do wide field sky shots like the Milky Way shots posted here. If you don't have long lenses, go to a nearby observatory - perhaps at a museum somewhere? Looking at Jupiter and Saturn is well worth the effort - they are spectacular.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Sure using a Telescope is something different, and don't know if there is special telescope to connect to DSLR [Canon] to capture the planets or stars or universe/galaxy better than just long lens or having wide shot of the sky showing the milky way as this 14mm do.

A bit off topic here, but you asked a good question.

If it's not moving at about the rate of a jet plane across the sky, it's probably a planet, or star, and not a satellite.

Read other posts in the astro section, and practice. It will happen.

You can try to shoot it with the longest lens you have, and then crop, and zoom in during post processing. I've done that with my Tamron 70-300, and I've gotten Jupiter and her moons, though not the best quality.

Thank you very much for your clarification.

Well, i just took few shots of that brightest spot to be sure, it was difficult to shoot it as i don't know what settings to have and the lens on tripod was all way up in awkward way, but when i zoomed in with camera i found it that you are right, it was a Jupiter because i see 3 or 4 smaller spots just next to it, the moons.

Tareq, there is a great, free application called Stellarium that shows you your night sky in real time. It's a great way to get to know the night sky. You can download it here: http://www.stellarium.​org/ (external link)

I just checked your gear list, WOW, you should have no trouble getting great images of Jupiter, and a whole lot more, with your 100-400L. I wish I had half of your stuff.

Well, thanks, but i still feel i need more or there are things missing, such as 500 or 600 prime, 85 1.2, some ultra wide primes such as 12/14/20, my only widest prime is Fisheye [8 and 15mm] and TS 24, would like to have 14mm and 35mm, also i want to own 80mp medium format, all that means that what i have as a price could be equal or half the price of what i want, and you wish to have half of my stuff? :D

I'm still learning and getting used with this tricky lens. One of my favorite shot this morning. It could be better if I got a tripod. Will buy one soon :)

I own the Rokinon 14 2.8, so I'm not knocking it, but the Nikon is better. Higher resolution (MTF), less vignetting (fixing vignetting in post means pushing the exposure, if you're already shooting at a high iso this simply isn't a good option), less distortion (fixing distortion in post means stretching pixels and possibly losing some of the image).

The Nikon is simply the better lens, and for the price it should be. There's a reason people spend the money to buy adapters to use it on their Canon cameras. Still, I think the Rokinon is as sharp as it gets in a native EF mount at 14mm, which is why I bought one (actually two, but that's another story ;) ). I've been walking around Disney World with mine and am quite happy with it. I had one delivered to my in-laws house just so I could use it on this trip. So far I've been quite pleasantly surprised, once I got around the fact that the distance scale is off. :cool:
It's much more robust than I was expecting for the price.

There is a warning on photozone's site: "Please note that the tests results are not comparable across the different systems."
