    Thanks for the hints NEAT and mrsawyer. I think 3200 is beyond my usual comfort zone with the Sony SLT - but I'll give it a whirl. I tend to be snapping at 55mm and f3 - ish and 3200 is the max auto-ISO. As I say - I'll see what I come back with and post. Thanks again.

Now the maths:
1/160s, f5.6, ISO 3200
1/320s, f5.6, ISO 6400
1/640s, f5.6, ISO 12800
1/xxxs, f5.6, ISO 16000

Looks like ISO 12800 may suffice...

    How high can you push the ISO on your camera without causing quality issues? I find that it goes up to ISO 16000, so next time, try pushing it up so can increase the shutter speed.

    Your main problem here is your shutter speed, in sports photography you need to use a minimum of 1/500 but I would go much higher.

    This would have been great if the puck was between the skater's feet!

    Thanks 4k - I have hundreds of these - this is the best so far!! The lighting is poor - but it doesn't stop me trying.

    The main thing in focus is the puck - on the left (in roller hockey they have bumps on them - white in this case). Some of the blur is due to motion.

    Like the idea of what's presented, but seems a bit out of focus from my end.
