My current setup for astrophotography

Most images I take are posted on this blog with the setup listed here!
The old ones are here as well, but crossed out.

My Nikon D5000 is almost retired, but time or another it comes handy when the T6i is busy.

I’m using the T6i mostly with the Nikon 135mm f2.8 AI, and man, it may look weird but just fits perfect. This lens is awesome for everyday use, and at night, pointed to the sky, makes a great wide field hunter!

I’m using a “Nikon do EOS” AI-EOS adapter with the famous “chip”, which means I have photometric calculator AND focus confirmation on the 135mm with my T6i.
