Going Fishy

Yesterday my neighbor, and fellow “shutter-hubby,” gave me an early birthday present – a Meke 6.5 mm f/2.0 fisheye lens. I’ve never owned a fisheye lens, so it’ll be pretty interesting to play with. I’ll be using it mostly for astrophotography, as this focal length will allow me to take up to thirty-eight second exposures of the night sky before the stars begin streaking. Thirty-eight seconds!

I took it out and played with it a small bit after worship this morning 1.It’s a pretty neat effect, I can’t wait to get out for some good night shots!
