I'd really like the Tamron 15-30 2.8 and it makes more sense for the stuff I shoot most.
Some of the pics Kerry took were with the Tamron.

Those are pretty cool!

I've been following a FB group with a lot of deep sky shots and it's fascinating. There are several relatively inexpensive tracking mounts and I've been considering getting one so I can take long exposures. You aim the mount at Polaris and then attach the camera. I hope to have one by next spring.

That's how my old telescope worked.

NexStar 8SE Computerized Telescope [item # 11069]

Got the T-Adapter and T-Ring to mount the D750 to it. It's hard to see anything on the screen so it's hard to get it in focus. Still need the wedge to do long exposure. Frost forming on the ground is too cold to use the hand controller.

Very different situation but the lens I use for Milky Way shots is full manual. Once I get it focused, I tape the focus ring down. I'm sure you are way ahead of me here, but I know a lot of astro work is done by stacking numerous images. The sensor in the 750D should be outstanding for long exposure high ISO work. Love my Canon 5D3 but sometimes wish I'd gone with the 750D.

Once I get a wedge I will start experimenting with long exposure. Everything moves too fast with the telescope. I wasn't even using 1 second. Huge difference from the Tamron 15-30 when I went up to 30 seconds.
