Expensive image

Well I've finally managed to upgrade my point and shoot camera with an Olympus OM-D EM5 as well as 12, 45 and 75mm lenses. I've topped it off with a Hahnel remote so that I can take long exposure images. This is really all to take an image I've wanted to do for years and that's of the The Rho Ophiuchi cloud complex. I figure the 75mm which is the equivalent of a 150mm 35mm telephoto should be perfect. In my preliminary tests with this lens it certainly lives up to its reputation of one of the fastest and best resolution lenses in the MFT league.
Really happy with the system and can't wait to trial it out at Astrofest.
