    To be honest I haven't really used it much yet other than this shot so I don't really have the experience to say for sure. Initial impressions are very good! The build quality is nice for the price and the small size is vey welcome as well. The copy I have seems pretty good the infinity focus is right on the mark which is good. I have had two other Rokinon lenses where that wasn't the case.

    super work @nerwin. I don't know where it is at in the sky.

    I have a fond memory of viewing it though... I was in Marine boot camp, and we had to climb a hill called mount MF'r, rightfully called. Anyway when we finally reached the top, around midnight I think, it was spectacular sight, and my bud said it was the milky way. It didn't look exactly like your shot but wonderful. I bet it would be an ideal site to shoot at. No light pollution, perfect CA weather, and amazing display of star clusters and color. Being a city boy, I had never experienced the sky in such glory. It was a moment I'll never forget.
    It was the best moment of boot camp, other than graduation.
