This is the first image with an old, inexpensive 55mm manual focus SLR lens made by Asahi for Pentax. I set the aperture to f/5.6 because any faster and the stars started to distort. Despite the old glass and some curvature in the corners, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality. With my camera, this lens yeilds a 14x18 degree FOV!
