Tim thanks. I'm coming to photography from an unusual door. Astrophotography. 4 years ago I had no idea what an ISO was. Just now starting to figure out what Aperture priority is :)

astrodave replied to the topic 'Dumbell Nebula with a 70-200mm and a 2x teleconverter?' in the forum. 52 minutes ago

OK here's a couple things on the topic. You can shoot the dumbbell (M27) but you will have to track the shot. With a 200mm and a 2x you are going to be shooting at f4+ depending on which lens you have. This is not a one shot object. You will need a couple hours of exposure as a minimum at f5ish. Take 1-3 minute individual shots and combine them with a stacking program.

One way to get way more luminance data to combine with the shot is a Hydrogen Alpha filter (probably about 12nm would be perfect) that you can stick in the camera. This would be huge for excellent detail but it will need a couple hours of exposure to. 

I'll stick up some of my astro shots and if you have questions just let me know.
