How many stars can you shoot with your camera? The D800 “astronomy tool”

orion d800 zoom

During these winter holidays the constellation of Orion was very bright in the sky. So I took a hand held shot (1/25 sec, f/1.4, IS0 4000) – and the result was highly surprising (above here a 100% crop of Orion’s belt). See by yourself in this zoomable version of the full picture here! Except for the distorsions of the fully open 50 mm 1.4 G (look at Jupiter in the top right corner) – the quantity of stars and even their colors are amazing!
