New Canon 75mm-300mm USM Lens

Since purchasing my Canon 400D with its 18mm-55mm lens I have thoroughly enjoyed using it, especially for taking night shots of the sky using the bulb setting. But as the whole point of owning an SLR camera is to be able to change the lens, I thought it was about time to purchase a new one.

I decided that I did not want to spend hundreds of pounds on a new lens, so I decided upon a 75mm-300mm Canon lens, which does not have IS (Image Stabilisation). After looking around the internet I found that the cheapest price from a retailer like Amazon was around £175, so I decided to look on eBay, where I found a company selling them for around £120 including delivery.

Well today I received it, I think it was cheaper because it was a US version and I have tried it out in the daytime, and it makes me feel like a private detective or part of the papparazi when using it.

But I do like it, I now want to know what kind of astronomy images it will produce with the extra zoom.

The 75mm-300mm USM Lens is available at Argos, Jessops, Amazon and eBay.
