    Will be going to 5 day northern lights photo trip next month. Will post some from that trip then to see how it performs on real auroras, not these mild southern ones

    There is some definite coma, but it isn't bad and is gone by f/2.8. That shot is where it was most prevalent out of those that I took. I think because there were some brighter stars in the corners. A few other shots, even at f/1.8, it was much less noticeable, but dimmer stars.

    Quick example:

    I look forward it to it! Granted, I had a moonlit night, but I was pretty impressed with how much light the Sigma gave me. The minimal of vignetting was very impressive and useful.

    Start of the 805 picture time lapse is taken with canon 24mm f/1.4 II but then the arc of the auroras went so wide i swithed to sigma 14mm f/1.8. Boy i love this lense and can't wait these 2 weeks to get to shoot auroras for real =)

    4 second and iso 4000 f/1.4 with canon and 1.8 with sigma. Those are mostly satellites, one iridium flash close the end and few airplanes.
