Recently I bought Canon 55-250mm IS telephoto zoom lens for my Canon EOS 550D camera. My purpose is to use it for nature and astrophotography. To test it for astrophotography at its full length I went to Kutch Mitra Park, a place which is 10 km south of the city of Bhuj with Mr. Narendra Gor. I wanted to capture comet C/2009 P1 Garradd and some of the Milky Way fields. The site is dark enough for observing and is close to Valakhavas Lake, our old observing site.
I could get some fine shots and have shared some of them below:
|Cygnus Milky Way. Exp. 13 secs, ISO 1600, F/5.6, Focal length 55mm|
|Lambda Scorpii Region. Exp. 6 secs, ISO 3200, F/4, Focal length 55mm|
|Sagittarius Milky Way. Exp. 5 secs, ISO 3200, F/4, Focal length 55mm|
