I’m certain the 5D IV is fine for night photography, you just demand more experience and understanding of appropriate settings for this kind of photography. Decent Milky way shots really don’t crave great cameras, peculiarly in darker skies. Fortunately, there are a lot of good resources online to assistance you lot empathise the right choices for ISO, exposure length, white balance settings, stability problems, and lens choices (You want a lens without much coma, and a faster lens is mostly a ameliorate lens for astrophotography. Your f/4 might not really exist the right lens. 2.8 lenses are on the edge, and 1.eight or 1.four lenses will let you assemble a lot of light in shorter exposures.). If you become serious, you lot can spend money on tracking devices and filters, or even telescopes. After you take your pics, there is also a lot of post processing that can optimize your images.

Ballpark settings? ISO 3200, xx-30 seconds (depending on your focal length – the wider your lens, the longer your exposure can exist without star trails).

Hang in there – you can become a lot of pleasance out of a photographically fruitful night under the Galaxy!

(I’ve simply been to “dark skies” a few times, just I’ve loved each visit!)
