    Focal Length Comparison - thingy

    From the Canon web site - its handy to get an idea on focal lengths if your just starting out.

    It only applies to focal length e.g. mm not Canon specifically

    1200mm pfft is that all LOL, I'll use my scope for that sort of focal length. It comes with 203mm of aperture also, not sure of the lens size of the camera lens.
    Andrew.
    comments and criticisms are always appreciated.
    Unless I post into the "NOT FOR CRITIQUE" section then the above doesn't apply.

    You know, I would be interested to catch up some time and pick your brain about Astro photography. Looking at getting a scope soon and could do with a bit of insight - if your up for it?

    Cheers

    Your soul can be saved, don't worry, but you must act quickly. Follow these simple steps:

    1: Eat Macs immediately. I suggest a condiment of some type, makes them go down easier.
    2: Buy PC
    3: Purchase this and send to me http://www.canon.com.au/products/vis...2.8lisusm.aspx

    This should do the trick.
