Best lens for star sky time lapse - manual lens OK

Looking for the best way into star sky time lapse with a wide horizon. Think desert and city scape skies. Manual lens would be fine with me as it will be a speciality assignment.

Any suggestions from the "starry pro's and semi-pro's" out there are most welcome.

Will use a 5DS/R for the takes.

No budget limit - but I'm a self-confessed cheapskate(!) - so a lens that brings me into the 98% league is still OK.
