My first attempt at photographing something like this so moderately pleased.

Taken with the new Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary lens on Canon 70D. (so 960mm equiv)

Cropped.

Not bad, didn't even know you could actually see it by merely a lens.


Eos M, 5DII, and some lenses.

Haha, not sure you could call the sigma 150-600 a mere lens. My telescope is only 480mm in focal length, though it is considered a wide field scope. But yes, Jupiter is closer and bigger than you'd think when it comes to photographing this gas beauty.


2x 50d: with 17-85mm f4-5.6, 100mm Macro USM, 50mm f1.8, 2x Sigma 30mm f1.4, 55-250mm (kit lens), Canon 100-400mm L, Tamron 200-400mm f5.6, Samyang 8mm. 480mm refactor with HEQ5. Home made beamsplitter stereo rig.

Wow, might have to try that with my Siggy 120-300 with the 2x TC on it.

I should know soon.
My local lens hire company has the new Sigma TC-2001 and 1401 on order and should be here in a few days.
Not sure I would have enough usage to justify buying a 2x convertor, but a few days rental will be cheap.

I may buy a 1.4x TC-1401 though.

I find focusing anything smaller than the moon very difficult with my 2x and tamron 200-400mm. Keen to hear how you go.

The solution (I think...) is to use EOS Remote - as long as you have a wifi enabled camera.

The problem I found with the 150-600 is that even on a decent tripod, as soon as you engage Live View and 5x or 10x magnification to help with manual focusing, then as soon as you touch the focus ring then even the slightest movement is magnified so much in the view that it is hard to do as the object jump all over the place and will disappear from the view. Worse, when the object is moving itself.

However, with EOS Remote you have no need to touch the camera and the manual focusing with a magnified view can be done remotely, and there is no movement at all.

Oh I have tried focusing in live view manually with my 60D and it is a nightmare trying to carefully and delicately hand turning the focus ring then watch the camera move violently. I don't think the 60D has wifi :(
I do own the Vello Shutterboss VI (I see now they have a VII) but I have never known there were any remotes you could focus thru wifi.
What is your EOS Remote?

I have been waiting to try this myself since my 150-600C arrived and every single night there has been at least some cloud cover right where I need the camera pointing. Great shot and glad to know the lens can actually manage what I am hoping :)

I guess this can help. Click on play and see the clip. Download is the next link:

LINK to download EOS Remote (external link)

Then though not sure about any particular camera model, many are amenable to have accessory WiFi via use of Memory cards that act dual, both storage and WiFi module:

LINK to EyeFi (external link)
LINK to Cheaper yet same sort of thing FlashAir (external link)
And there are a couple more like EZ share etc.


There was a link to a mobile router that also can do magic for cameras that have no WiFi for remote access, a lot of neat control over the bottoms, wirelessly, I believe left by Griz or Jimmy in past and if I remember correctly it was either for TP-LINK Travel Router-TL-MR3020 or D-Link DIR-635 router. Hope if they reading this, can add a note.
