Surprisingly, the B25 did not do as well as I hoped it would, coma was very pronounced wide open, and CA was pretty bad wide open too. It was fine stopped down to 2.8, but not as good as the B18.

Thanks for that info. I thought my biggest concern if I used that lens for astro would be the 'focus by wire' aspect of the lens to find .

Took the 55/1.8 for an image already posted but also took the Laowa 15/2.
Excuse the NOISY trees. That part of the image was black SOOC and just to see what
shadow pull in extreme the a9 could do.

Eddie I'm making progress. I spent 5 hours yesterday 'wrenching'
Next step is to purge the propane tank, then test for leaks, then lastly (the easy part),
doing the electrical.

While I was wrenching Poof worked on some quickly deployed poncho liners that wall off the coach
from the cabin and the big sliding door. Makes a huge difference in hot or cold plus makes it darker.

Nice one Robert, curious as to purge the tank? And what’s your method for leak testing?

All brand new propane tanks have air/nitrogen/etc. inside AND moisture.
To purge a tank you run propane gas through it 4-5 times pushing out the air and other gases AND the moisture.
If you don't purge a brand new tank (unless it came pre-purged) then the moisture inside can rust from within AND
when you fill the tank with LPG you'll never get as full as you could if there is no compressible gas inside.

Leak test with soapy water in a spray bottle=looking for bubbles to form.

Thanks Mike!
Well the a9 won't stand the shadow pull of the R3 but the a9 is more higher ISO capable so far to me. I believe the a9 has
bigger photosites as to why.
The other thing with that image, it was my first wide field astro with the Laowa. Yep the coma is there but when I look at a Milky
Way shot I'm looking at the Milky Way. One could spend some clean up time/clone stamp/ well various ways of cheating but my stars
were almost in focus---a rarity for me. So (for me alone Travis ;) I find the Laowa easier to Milky Way with than the Batis 18 I had for
wide field Milky Way. I'll be the first to admit that the Batis is a way better lens but just not for what I wanted it for and my ability(inability)
to focus.
Ironically the 55/1.8 I used AF on after zooming in on a star and it worked a charm. And that means I have been looking at the Rokinon 14/2.8 AF
but there are too many Rokinons here as it is.

"Balancing Act" Experimenting with 70-200 f2.8GM. My 24-70 f2.8GM was getting water spots from being too close to water.

Anyone else creeped out over this privacy and data breach stuff? I got rid of facebook months ago and never looked back. I de-activated my page and am actually thinking of deleting it outright.

Also thinking of google and how much I've let them track basically everything I do. Mind you I have an android phone, google home, and all sorts of nest products in my home. The idea that they are literally tracking everything about me everything doesn't feel right. I got rid of chrome and am using firefox with some tracker blocking ad-ons. But am really thinking of ditching gmail, nest, and android too.
