Re: Hand held Orion

The higher the ISO the shorter the exposure needed to capture the same amount of signal, but there is a noise trade-off.

Many people shoot astro shots at ISO800 or ISO1600 beyond that the noise becomes a real problem.

If you shoot with the 40-150mm + 1.4TC at maximum aperture and ISO800 then a shot of 5 - 10 secs on your tripod should be OK. Even 20 secs for fainter objects but you will see a little elongation.

Have fun.
