Great picture! Astrophotography is something I want to try very much. Since it says it was with a 150-600 lens, but at 1200mm, I assume you also were using a teleconverter?

And how is matching 90d with 400/5.6 L?
I've read mixed opinions....

PS: I'm carrying a 15-85 only, as everyday lens...

90D + 400 5.6 gets no mixed reviews from me. Sharp as a tack. Very light for 640mm of reach. Very affordable. No complaints. No plans to switch to anything else.

I loved that sensor. I got spoiled by the R5 AI AF, so I haven't used my 90D much lately, but there are times when I'm using the R5 in crop mode where I wish I could put the 90D sensor inside the R5.

I think of what you might call "reach" more in terms of focal length divided by pixel-spacing, rather than focal length times crop factor. The EOS D30 has a crop factor of 1.6x, too, but I doubt anyone would choose it over any FF camera in a focal-length-limited situation (unless they wanted tiny files).

Very true. When you crop a full frame image down to an APS-C size, you throw away pixels. The 90D has 32.5 native megapixels before any cropping. The math is evading me right now but an image from my 5Div would end up being about 12-15mp after cropping to a 640mm angle of view with a 400mm lens.

Thank you and yes I use the Sigma 2.0 teleconverter.

Here is the picture I posted just yesterday.

I took that picture and cropped out a section.

Your posts got me interested in this lens and I looked at other postings with it - quite nice. Been some time since I owned a Sigma lens and the picture quality and reasonable price on this one has me interested.

I'm intrigued. How do you focus? Your shots are clearer than anything I've managed to get so far.
My brother has taken wonderful shots with the Tamron 150-600 that I gave him mounted on his T4i with manual focus. He sent me a shot of Saturn and the rings are visible. Blows my mind.

A couple recent examples with the 90D from other threads. With the Sigma 150-600 C (slight crop), and the older Canon 300 f/4L IS (cropped by about 30-40%)

A couple weeks ago, there was something dead just past our property. For a few days, I saw several eagles & vultures hanging out in this dead tree on our property. I saw at least 2 full adult bald eagles, 2 that had mostly white heads & 2 that didn't have any white yet.

I haven't had this body for very long so I don't have a lot of shots to pick from with it. Guess I'll have to go with the obligatory cat pic ...

I am going to answer you and Rod below with this one post.

This lens matched up with the Canon 90D have given me wonderful results. Before owning the 90D and the Sigma 150-600C lens I owned the Canon 60D and the Sigma 150-500 lens. I could never get the quality with the 60D and the 150-500 that I now get with the 90D and 150-600C

Rod

With the older configuration I could spend 2 HOURS (or more!!) trying to manually focus my 150-500 lens and never get anywhere near the quality of what I can get with the 150-600C lens coupled with my 90D. The auto-focus of the 90D is worlds better than the 60D. With the 90D auto-focus I do not have to try and slowly manually focus my lens.

One thing I ALWAYS do is use my tripod and also my Canon RS-60E3 remote switch to be sure there is no camera body movement with when I press the shutter button, because I never actually use the shutter button! The Canon RS-60E3 is only $21.95 on Amazon, I highly suggest you buy one if you do not own one now.

Now when I go out and shoot moon pictures I can be totally done in 10-15 minutes, just shooting the moon.

I would ask you both, what camera bodies do you own? Are they capable of doing the auto-focus I get with the 90D? There are better camera bodies than the 90D, but those are outside my wallet size.

I have also gotten some shots of Saturn and Jupiter, but they are not super sharp, not as sharp as the moon being so much difference in distance from the Earth.

One thing really cool about Jupiter, if you can go out and see it 2 or 3 nights in a row and get pictures each night, the moons around Jupiter will ALWAYS be in totally different locations!!
