Lens for Night Sky Photography

Hi

Can anyone suggest a full frame lens for night sky landscape photography.

I'll be using a Canon 6D.

All help appreciated.

Thanks

Bladrik

Full frame is the challenge

What sort of focal length / FOV?

Samyang lenses are very popular.

14mm f2.8 and 35mm f1.4 have very good reputations.

Fast, sharp. You'll find lots of images posted on this site taken with the 14mm. Not so many on this site taken with the 35mm. They are both manual focus and relatively cheap.

The Samyang 135 F/2 is also considered to be VERY good for astro work, planning on getting one myself eventually.
