    I love this shot and would like to get a shot half as good as this, which brings me to the question.
    What equipment do you use to get these and shots like this.
    People who I have asked all are using telescopes with camera adapters on them.
    SO I hope you can throw in some details as I know I would like to get this, but I am not looking at getting a telescope.
    I will be happy just looking at yours and others if that is the case.
    Well done, really like it.
    CC is always welcome, the good and the bad. I promise not to take it personal as I know it wasn't meant that way.

    HI GRamps...

    What your talking about is deep space photograhy using telescopes.
    I used my
    sony a7r2
    Roknion 24mm fe 1.4 Manual Lens
    Novaflex vr slim Pano Head. (this allows you to do panoramas and multirow panorams...very important , this and the lesn are the most important...camera it mostly does not matter what camera you use)

    Thats it....besides apps on phone for planning milky way times and visibility etc.

    Its actually easier than it appears.

    Killer capture Steve I was hoping to capture something myself with the A99 II and 16-35mm f/2.8 ZA Lens, but I just have not had the opportunity yet! This image is very inspirational though for sure, so thanks for sharing,

    Thank you Steve for the information on this, as you can tell I have no idea what I am talking about.
    Its good to know I don't need to worry that much and keep the lens I wanted to get on my list.
    Which is the same lens you use just under a different name.
    Though the macro lens is the next on the list.
