Samyang 24mm ED AS UMC milky way?

Really Thanks! With this sample I think portrait will be perfect, at least where I live; landscape will be tricky but I'd give a try. Thanks again to share these to me

A-HA ! that's not my case since I've already post my image. Then, man, what can I say. There is a huge amount of information in your posts and in your link that I'm copying it in my personal folder "manuals & tutorial" . I can only say thanks once again even if now ... I have to study !

That's interesting. I found boring to take shots with NR on, of course , but there was a reason for it. Now this suggestion, along with the other one, let me change my mind. I also guess for another reason: let say I'll take 10 images with a lens (10mm) and other ten images with another lens (24mm) with different subject or foreground; each shot is 30 seconds. I'll have 600 seconds extra time. Following your suggestion i can only take 10 dark frame, while having a beer, for 300 seconds and reuse the dark frames both for the 10mm and the 24mm post processing isn't it?

Thank you so much about all these tons of suggestions ! I'm not understanding what thread contains the tutorial on using pass tool, maybe a link missing? :confused:
To remove noise I build a mask using "find edge" on a channel (the most contrasted) that I think cover the same logic. Anyway I'll check Pete_-XL's post for sure.
As per the NR:. do you think stacking 10 Images with NR ON gives a worst result compared with stacking 10 images with NR OFF + 3 or 4 dark frame? I thought the dark frame that the K3 is subtracting is the closer possible noise sensor image, because of the sensor temprature etc. Also I thought PENTAX knows how to deal its own raw file compared to a 3P software as Sequator , don't you agree?

Thanks again !

Ok got the sense of "washed", thanks. So the 4 points above are the main reasons why I'm buying the 24mm; very very interesting to me I end up to these same assumption of you. I guess the portrait images can be nice even without panorama but it is just a guess. In case landscape is the ideal shot I can use the 10mm or have a pano with the 24mm : camera in portrait and taking 3 or 4 shots.

well, I know-ish about pano, I did some mw core with the 50mm (plastic fantastic) but with no enough noise control despite a low ISO used, sure a matter of bad Post process. Now I learn some trick to reduce noise and increase sharpening at the same time . Also I'll follow your suggestions and I'll use that tool ! Very very appreciated your help (below the pano, f1.8, 80 seconds per shot 500ISO, NR long exposure ON. For sure I should reprocess that raws)

Thanks a lot!

first of all thanks a lot. I'm pretty much with you about everything you wrote . Just the sentence above is not too clear: what do you mean for "being a wash"? I am expecting to use OGPS-1 (I own it) using that big aperture to decrease ISO and noise . I do not expect that aperture is a problem in the night. The image below is a 17 + 3 sequator stacking , 17 for the sky and 3 for the foreground , and it has been cropped . Samyang 10mm is the lens.

I assume the 24mm on apsc could give me quite a good view in portrait mode but i guess - so here is the question - on landscape it will give ... artistic view only (tree silhouette, far mountains peak detail, ancient building etc)
