First attempt at astro with Sigma 16mm
5

Did my first attempt at astro with the Sigma 16mm tonight. f/1.4 sure helps when it's dark. Did try f/2 and f/2.8 also, which slightly improved sharpness in the corners, but obviously lost some light, so don't think it was worth it. Have to experiment a bit more to find what works best. Nailing focus can be hard when it's dark and the lens is so sharp.
Here is a picture at f/1.4

Unfortunately didn't bring the Samyang 12mm to compare with. My favorite astro lens up until now.
