I purchased a Samyang (Rokinon in the US?) 14/2,8 more than a month ago.
But the weather has not played my way so to speak.

But finally the skies cleared up for a night.
Really cold though, about -12C.

Well, here is my first try.

Any C&C are welcome! :)

Beautiful, well done. Nice and crisp and clear, like the night :)

Lovely.
I'm hoping to achieve similar results some day.

Nice first shoot with that lens. I need to get out to dark skies more often!

Great stuff :)
I like my Samyang 14mm F2.8, use it on my Canon 5D3 or 6D. Produces good wide angle Milky Way shots
An awesome lens for the price ... I well recommend it

Nice start! I'd consider pushing the iso up to 3200 or even 6400 to bring out more of the Milky Way... I routinely do 30 sec exposures at 6400 with my 6D/Samyang14 combination.

Cheers,
Stephen
