    It seems the Sigma 150 2.8 macro is an excellent lens, very sharp and detailed.

    Bit of an experiment last night. Stuck my iPhone over the eyepiece of my 'scope (Meade ETX 105) to take this picture of the moon. I'll have to do it properly next time and get a t mount for my proper camera :)

    I bought the Sigma as my Tokina 100mm 2.8 macro has no built in focus motor which is needed for focus stacking with my D850. I checked out all the reviews for the Nikkor AFS 105mm and Sigma HSM 105mm and the general consensus was that the sigma 150mm 2.8 macro is sharper than them all and also gives a greater working distance, although its quite a heavy lens.

    Good link with top fact of the year for me...the piles under Venice are Alder. I had no idea. Amazing, tho I have found aged alder roots after a flood sometimes, which are nice and gnarly and wondered why the wood was in such perfect condition. Now i know:)
