I love my 24 mm f/1.4 v2 for stars.

The first one is wide-open at f/1.4.  Next one is at f/2, because there was a bright moon reflecting off the snow in the foreground.  The last one (in Seattle) is wide-open, and has enough coma to be noticeable in a normal print.  But people still like it.

These look brilliant at moderate print sizes, 8x12 to 12x18 inches.  They get me lots of oohs and ahhs.

In the interest of full disclosure, I only got my 24 L recently, the Pacific Northwet has famously bad weather, and I've had limited opportunities to do this type of photography.  What I've done so far has come out much better than I expected.
