Travis I need lessons on Milky Way and the Batis 18. I did try this weekend, results are so-so :(

Now some thoughts on my kit (Pelican) loadout with what's becoming all Sony....with one exception.
So far in this Pelican-
a7rii
a9
a6500
70-300g (replacing next week with FE 100-400)
1.4TC and 2.0TC
12-24G
Batis 18
FE 55/1.8
FE 25/2.8
and the odd ball-->EOS 24-70
I really a liking the FE90macro but seems like for a dedicated macro trip I'd take it.
The EOS 24-70 can do double duty, but how is the macro from it? Here's an example and I'll post
another this evening.....C/C please on the macro capabilities of this 'normal' lens

The details look nice and sharp. It's interesting that the exif shows a focal length of 80mm on the 24-70 lens. Do you have to get much closer to the subject using the 24-70 over the FE 90? That would probably be the biggest drawback I'd have since I can never seem to get very close to these critters.

^ Vinz, I prefer the ethereal feel of the 2nd one but what happened to the lights on the pier? I would probably convert it to a dramatic black and white. Nice work on both though.

We made it to Doughton Park this past weekend, imagine walking around shooting bee macros without dying of heat stroke-that's the beauty of elevation on the Blue Ridge. While there I gave the Milky Way a try with the FE12-24mm....not a preferred aperture at F4 and zooms are not what an astro type would grab but why not? Of course it would help a lot if I could learn to focus on stars :(
The light pollution is the city of North Wilksborough NC.

I like the hint of city lights in the lower left corner too.

Davis that is in Doughton Park on the Blue Ridge Parkway...almost 15 degrees cooler there than down here in the city. We went up to escape the heat, do another shake down with the camper prepping for Yellowstone and hoping for dark skies. Dark skies are there but too much noise pollution from n.Wilksborough. First night was at Doughton, next night was at Stone Mountain State Park NC.

How would a broad leaf of a house plant look under my macro lens? Well, here is the result. I wanted to capture the intricate paths and geometric shapes in the leaf. I used the light from my iphone to light under the leaf.

First real use Batis 18mm.
Folks I work with asked why so few waterfalls in Iceland. My answer is that we have 300 waterfalls
within 50 miles of the cabin. Waterfalls, blah blah blah. Regardless, a nice use of the B18. Not a long walk at all but this is a lens I could carry for miles-
