I just ordered a new to me lens and I'm looking forward to trying it out. I plan on using it for shooting the milkyway, nightscapes, and lightning. I searched on here and didn't find a thread dedicated to posting astrophotography images, and since those 3 topics are somewhat related I figured I would start one. Looking forward to seeing some of your images for inspiration...

This was done with the R6 and EF 135mm F/2 L lens. Its a stack of images taken using a star tracker. Those are the Lagoon and Trifid nebulae in the constellation Sagittarius. The center of our galaxy is just off the bottom center of the image.

Sure be nice to know what gears and camera settings you folks are using. The images are great but it'd be nice to learn something too.

This one is also with the R6 and 135mm. That is Comet Panstaars K2 to the right of a bright star in the constellation Ophiuchus.

Nothing at all, just a distinctly different genre, for me. Lightning can be captured during the day, night images cannot.

Here is one of the other half of the moon. Taken with the R6 and RF 800 f/11, using a special technique.

OK, I'll bite. These images span the last 7 years of shooting the night sky, tried to pick a representative selection covering various aspects of 'astrophotography'. Last image is to comply with the 'lightning' category; Blue Starters are a rather rare occurrence, and believe it or not was something to witness.

All images shot with Canon bodies.

Some exceptional images here.
And me, just got (finally) a telescope and soon, a nice sturdy mount. This looks very interesting to me.

So far, all I have are some boring star field shots, just learning how to use the R7 with the telescope. Successful, but until that Losmandy mount shows up, I'm somewhat limited.

From the same set on Halloween morning, this is a 3 image series taken within 6min as the sun broke over the horizon behind me. All taken between 6:56am (night image) and 7:02am (daylight image).
