I wanted to drop a little note to whoever purchased this lovely lens from my wish list! For those of you wondering what this is, it’s a super long, super sweet, telephoto lens. It’s like a telescope that I can connect to my Canon camera. This thing can see stuff pretty far out and this allows me to capture photos of space oddities and our natural satellites rotating the earth (the moon, stars and shit like that!)
Only thing is, now I have 2 of the same lenses. Different manufacturers but same focal length…Which is ok with me because I can now see two places at the same friggin’ time! Hopefully this lens will work with my older Canon and if not I’ll have to see if I can find a telephoto-to-iphone lens adapter.
Meanwhile, A sista needs a serious tripod now to handle these lenses, and they’re really heavy! Almost as heavy as my tits! …almost!
These lenses are serious, weighing in at a hefty 4.4lbs. Once my camera is added the total weight becomes well over 5 pounds. I need a really strong, hardcore tripod with a quick-release option. Something with a ball-head or an easy pan/rotate fluid-head that can handle this kind of deep, dark, space exploration, with precision!
I repeat- Thank you again to whomever thinks so highly of me! I took a few shots of myself and this beauty of a lens for you so you can see my gratitude and I hope you enjoy the stars as much as I do!
More sky pics coming soon using this lens, currently the weather isn’t warm enough outside to point this thing towards random stars just yet. But when the weather permits I’ll be a space-exploring junkie!
And I three-peat my repeat: Thank you again, secret person! -HUGS!
