Man, I really, really want one of these. They're kinda hard to find used, huh?

hi lisa. just buy a brand new one as it's really really cheap compared to the Canon.

Ya, the used ones are hard to find. One, there aren't alot of used ones on the market. And two, when they are put up for sale, they are snapped up in a flash. The used ones usually don't go for a lot less than a brand new one, so I would also recomend just buying a new one. You can buy one from B&H along with a high end B+W CPL filter for far less than the the Canon 15-85 alone. The Sigma 17-70 is a very under rated lens in my books.

Well I've been out camping all weekend near Winthrop Washington, which is far far away from the city lights, so I thought I'd give some star/night shots a try. I found what I thought would be a cool spot, and let loose with only a vague idea of what I was doing.

They looked great in the camera, which made me super exicted, but when I got back to the laptop they were not nearly as impressive as I had hoped for. Still got some okay stars, but nothing like I had hoped for. Looks like I'll need some more practice before I get it all dialed in.

Some very good tries at night sky shots there. I think you're pretty close to what you want too. To me it looks like there may be a slight bit of motion blur or something of that nature. Also looks like the stars may be ever so slightly out of focus too (just my observations). I've heard that using live view to focus on the stars is quite helpfull. Other than that, I think they look pretty good.

:cool:

Yea, I have a pretty good idea of what to try next time... lower ISO, a bit shorter SS.... I tried liveview for focusing but all I got was a black screen. I didn't think to use a headlamp on the building for focusing purposes... next time!

How long was your exposure? I find anything longer than 20 seconds or so I'm getting the Earth's rotation and the stars are no longer a crisp dot. These actually look pretty good to me. I have an opportunity to shoot some stars this weekend so wondering how to do it.

I think your choice of ISO and SS was okay. Although, if you wanted to experiment, I would start with the shutter speed first. As for using 'live view' to focus on the stars, I haven't had a proper opertunity to try it my self. I heard it from a fellow member here on the forum a while back. I think it went something like this....Find a star to focus on with live view. Once in frame, use the zoom feature on live view (up to 10x I think) to fine tune the focus. This should be done while the camera is in manual focus mode of course.

Regardless, you seem to have a good start of things and I wouldn't think it should take very long to fine tune your technique. ;)
