During annual gathering with local amateur astronomers, I borrowed this Samyang lens (unfortunately, it has it's issues as seen in bottom right) as I wanted to do this widefield of whole cygnus area for a while. It still doesnt get completely dark and on top of that, almost full moon was shining, but the outcome is quite pleasing nevertheless, even though the stars do not look that great.
