Good shot. That is only at about 26 degrees above the horizon.
It would be difficult to see in Stockton. CA.

Jerry,

I used a 50mm f/1.8. The image is cropped down, so the coma problem is not to severe, (it gets pretty bad with this lens out at the actual frame edges).

Hi David,

Thanks for the reply.

I thought I would send an image my friend shot.

I am including it becaues I like the way he documents his astrophotography images. I believe he used a 50 mm f/1.8 lens set at f/2.2. I think you can use his link to view the image. I think he shot the image on a fixed tripod.

Jerry,

Yes, I have an image of Sagittarius. It was taken in July of 2012 at an SAS star party. It was one of six images uploaded to Shutterfly. See http://share.shutterfly.com/share/received/detail.sfly?imageIndex=0&sid=2CcuHDlo4ZOcA&fid=5213786e9743cca8. Click "View Album". It's the second image. (Original email sent 7/27/2012).
