I own a Canon 100d and i like to photograph the stars, I'd like to have a wide angle lens to capture the most of the milky way i can. Possibly as cheap as possible and have really good quality. Thank You Zoe.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • I'd google "18-55" and "astrophotography". Your kit lens is probably your best option if you need cheap. See: nightskyinfocus.com/astrophotography/capturemilkyway – inkista Jun 20 '15 at 20:19
  • You can also shoot with a longer focal length lens and then stitch together overlapping images of different parts of the sky. The image then has far greater resolution; to get such an image in one shot would require a much more expensive lower focal length lens mounted on an expensive full frame camera. – Count Iblis Jun 20 '15 at 20:48
