Canon FD 50mm, f1:1.4 S.S.C lens, is it good?

Recently I obtained Canon FD 50mm, f1:1.4 S.S.C lens from ebay, relatively cheap...
Now, because it's mechanical interface is not compatible with EOS cameras, the required modification may prove to be irreversible (it will include some parts removal and additions - it is not that complicated though).
Anyone has any opinion of this lens as to its suitability for astro photography? How does it compare to Canon 50mm (plastic-fantastic) 1:1.8 lens, which is considered as very good? I would like to avoid any possible disappointments :-)
