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