Gianluca Masi uses mainly Canon equipment. His setup includes two digital bodies: a 20D and 30D, using the same 8.2MP CMOS sensor. As for lenses, he uses a Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM zoom and a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM. Both are excellent optics, providing an amazing imaging quality. For special needs, he uses two Carl Zeiss (180-f/2.8 and 80-f/2.8) lenses, as well as a Takahashi FS-102NSV flourite refractor. All his long (night) exposures are calibrated by dark subtraction (especially at summer), to provide the best possible results.
