Re: D800 + Nikkor 14-24 2.8

Yes, it is. It was really dark and tough to compose, so I took a ton of images and reviewed them on the LCD to make adjustments.

Let me also recommend the 16-35mm f/4, if you want to use filters and VR.  The focal lengths are similar, but the latter offers some more composition choices and it's lighter, I think.

Whatever you decide, I can't recommend Gary Hart highly enough.

Since the OP is interested in astrophotography, here's one I took from The Grotto parking lot in Zion NP last summer.  Very little moon, ISO 800, 19mm, f/2.8, 20 sec.
