  1. Can we get an update on your article: Picking a Great Lens for Milky Way Photography. I would love to see you using lenses such as the Voigtlander 10.5mm/0.95 and Olympus m.Zuiko Pro 8mm/1.8 and adding commentary on the pros and cons of the super fast fish eyes on the market beyond the samyang/rokinon. The Venus Optics Laowa score low and often are not sharp at their maximum aperture, but at 4mm, there is something to play with there! Throw in cell phone computational photography for fun?
