Assuming they have similar low f-stops, what type of lens works best for night photographs of the stars/milkyway?
Great question, Richard. If the f-stops are equal, I would go for the widest lens possible (in the ultra-wide category). If you are shooting on a crop-frame camera, that would be something in the 10-22mm. If you’re on full frame, that would be something like 16-35mm.
Hope this helps!
