A couple of night sky mosaics with D800E and Samyang 24mm F1.4

I bought a Samyang 24mm F1.4 to help with night time lapses for the shorter exposure times reducing star trailing without a mount.

The frst copy of the lens had the left out of focus when the right was in focus so I had it replaced. This one is much better though not perfect (its slight though). Still its great value and comparing it directly to the 24-70 F2.8 it gives slightly better photos, better contrast and colour with about the same detail perhaps a tad sharper.

These 2 photo show off the D800E's incredible low light ability:
