Which lens would be better for astrophotography, in particular for the !ilky Way or the Aurora Borealis? In particular the to take pictures of the Aurora borealis and the Milky Way.

I bought the Rokinon 14mm 2.8 for a recent trip to Maine. It did a great job on the milky way shots--very sharp stars--and the price can't be beat!

I have the A7Rii and purchased the Rokinon 24/1.4 for a trip out west to Colorado Nat. Monument, Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. Pics came out very good with a 20 second exposure. Unfortunately, the clouds were not very cooperative and almost all my shots had some form of cloud in them.

I used Capture One Pro for post and am working on trying to do a better job in post since I have been doing it less than a year.

Samyang / Rockinon 24mm F1.4  Awesome lens.

 

Since I moved to Sony A7mkii from my Canon 6D I am still using my Canon mount 24mm  with an adapter and it is fantastic.  Stars are a little out in this image as I set the shot up for the foreground, but its a great lens
