Title just about sums it up. I'm really enjoying the stuff that I'm seeing in the forums here and I'm still completely in awe looking at the beautiful Milky Way shots I've seen. Boggles my mind how clear and unreal some of the shots are. Most of my questions I'm finding answers to with googlefu, but I figured I should ask here just for some clarity.
I want to attempt some sort of Milky Way shots from the north Georgia area and my gear at the moment is a bit limited. I can't build or currently afford to do any kind of tracking. I currently own a 5d classic, and a 40d. For glass I have a Rokinon 8mm 3.5 for the 40d, an EFS 17-85mm, and then some 28mm's that will work on the 5d. I don't know if the 28mm will be wide enough for any type of capture.
Between the two bodies, and my limited lenses, would the 5d and 28mm yield a better shot just from the lower noise, or would going with the 40d + 8mm or 17mm end up being the safer bet? I have a tripod and my remote for both bodies but I don't know much about any sort of stacking or tracking and I can't currently drop more fun money on it. Plus I still need to find a location away from the light pollution that I can use without getting shot at.
