That's a good capture there John, I like the diagonal composition, how do you find the 14mm lens?

This is the first time I have used it Keith. I really need to get it on a tracking mount to properly check it out for any coma in the corners. I set it at F 2.8 and used a fixed tripod.. The stars are streaking in the corners but that may be down to movement due to the 20sec exposure and the wide field of view. There is an interesting discussion on the issue here:
