    Hi everybody

    I have always liked taking photos, but I have never owned anything more than a phone camera, and a pocket digital camera.

    Next month I plan to buy the Mirrorless Sony A6000. I did a lot of research and this camera fits my needs, budget etc.

    Does anyone else have this camera?

    I plan to experiment a lot with it across various photography forms, people, landscape etc. One thing I want to take photos of, are the stars at night etc, would I need a big lens to achieve some good shots?

    I love photos like this - <Link removed - please read the forum rules on posting links)

    Hello Zola and welcome to the forum. While I can't say about the A6000, I can answer about the stars. Or, just confuse the issue, maybe. Most Milky Way type star shots are done with wider lenses, as in the 10 to 30mm range. A big lens (telephoto) is only needed when you are shooting the Moon or similar.

    Thank you very much :)

    I need to learn real theory of photography from the very basics, are there any good YouTube videos I should watch, or books I should get ?

    Mike Browne Photography and Gavin Hoey are a couple of my favourites - both have different styles but what I like about them is they both get stuck straight into the subject without 2 minutes of advertising waffle at the beginning. And they have a good delivery too.

    Since I last posted here I have watched approx 60 of Mike's short videos, starting from beginner and going through, very interesting and his delivery is straight to the point.

    Great suggestion, learning lots already

    Thanks
