Don't be in a hurry when using this lens: even the moon is moving rapidly enough so that you can' t take a lot of shots before having to reposition yourself. A real tough job if in winter, because you're freezing your fingers while working on it... But it's so BIG now! The moon takes quite the whole picture when at 1300mm. :-)
Lack of precision when focusing is the biggest downplay I've faced so far, that would surely have been possible to correct on a low budget lens like this [no target like old school SLR lens]. Don't even think about using it to shoot moving items or live action! Or be prepared to deleted a lot of pictures and curse even more while trying... ;-)
Here's my best pic taken at 4 am while trying it on for the first time under a freezing wind in Canada [no, I wasn't drunk, but it would explain the low overall quality]. No effet or cropping: only web resolution downsizing...
Well you got no auto feature, so you have to well understand basic of photography ( iso, f/ shutter speed ) and everything will go alright. It's good if you just started and want to sharpen your skill. If you like a minimum of the challenge that bring manuel mode, then you will love it. Take great photos, all aluminium alloy housing, good looking.
I took picture of jupiter yesterday and i was able to make it appear with the real color on the picture, grey in the center with the 2 orange stripe on each pole, and a picture of the moon who take 80% of the size of the picture.
If you hesitate and wonder: "should i get it or not."
You should, I was worrying too but it really worth it :)
Dont forget to get yourself your T-Mount adaptor ;)

This link says it all and it saved me a lot of typing. It needs a good tripod. I use a tripod on the lens and a monopod on the camera for more support. A wireless remote or the 10 second (minimum) timer must be used to eliminate any vibration. Live View is best and will show the vibration better than the eyepiece.
