Night & Star Photography Cameras and Lenses

Full frame cameras offer the best quality for night photography. You can also use a crop sensor camera but will not get the same results as using a full frame. I highly recommend the full frame options, but have provided some crop sensor options as well.

Please note, I have shot with the following cameras and lenses and found them to work very well, that's why they are on my recommendations list. There are many other equipment options, but I have not personally used them, so I have not added them to the following list.

If you're interested in learning how to take photos of the stars, Milky Way & Night Sky, head over to my Free Star Photography Tutorial, or sign up for one of my Star Photography Workshops!
