p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Startrails/meteor shower with 85/1.2L?


Hello, I rarely post anywhere except buy/sell, so it's nice to meet you all. This evening I am going with my photo club to photograph a meteor shower and star trails, and was wondering if anyone has any experience photographing them at f/1.2 - f/1.8 or so? Would I be better off with my 16-35 or 70-200 at f/4 or something like that? Will either be using a 5Dc or 40D. Thank you!
