How to Shoot Astrophotography with a 24mm Lens: Night Sky Photography Tips from Pierre T. Lambert

Travel photographer Pierre T. Lambert is currently doing a “7-Day Challenge,” where he shoots everything with just a 24mm F/1.4 lens. Last week we shared his street photography tips for using a wide-angle lens and now here are his astrophotography tips with the same 24mm lens.

Specifically, he’s using the the Sony FE 24mm F1.4 GM lens to capture the stars during this astrophotography tutorial. He notes that this particular Sony wide-angle lens has some special characteristics for shooting night sky photography, particularly a new optical design, which is supposed to suppress sagittal flare to help ensure that point light sources, such as distant stars, can be accurately reproduced, making the FE 24mm F1.4 GM well suited for astrophotography.

Watch the astrophotography tutorial below where he shares his tips for shooting the stars, and then go and visit Lambert’s YouTube channel to see all his great video content.
