Astrophotography – Nick Lamendola


My name is Nick Lamendola, I’ve been of member of ASRAS since 2000.  I really enjoy wide field imaging done with a DSLR and various camera lens, mainly using a tracking mount.  The wonder of a star filled sky on a clear night never ceases to amaze me, I have to look up.  Nature photography, birding, hiking, and wood working are other activities I enjoy.


Currently using a Nikon D750 full frame DSLR camera, usually mounted on a Star Adventurer tracking mount, made by Sky-Watcher. Some of my favorite lens to use are:

  • Samyang 14mm f2.4
  • Samyang 35mm f1.4
  • Nikkor 180mm f2.8 ED AI-S
  • Sigma 105mm f2.8 Macro
  • Sigma 50mm f1.4

Essential accessories for me include an intervalometer, dew heater strip with controller and batteries, and Bahtitnov focusing mask.
