Re: EM-5 + Samyang FE

Here's a couple I took with my EM-5 and Samyang fisheye lens. I also did some post processing to brighten the stars up further. Both of these were about 30sec exposure I believe.  Unfortunately the more you push the images in post, the more they start to break up and have unpleasant amounts of noise.

I love these shots Kiri !! I'm pretty sure you shared another milkyway shot on google plus a few months back, and it encouraged me to grab the 7.5mm rokinon/samyang. I'm a bit north, so the MW isn't as bright where I am, but I've grabbed a few in my attempts to duplicate that first image of yours from G+.

one attempt, not ideal conditions...
