This week's lens review focus is on finishing up my coverage of the brand new Zeiss Milvus Distagon 18mm f/2.8.  A definite area of strength for the lens is in the astrophotography department.  I shot this one a few nights ago.  One thing you don't think about (or at least I didn't before becoming a night photographer) is that the position of the galaxy shifts with the passing of the seasons.  Autumn is the best time where I live to get the Milky Way lined up with one of my favorite (local) astro shooting sites.  You can see my first look video on this lens here http://bit.ly/2cofpZh  | or visit the image gallery from the lens here:  http://bit.ly/2csoGhc  

Technical Information: Zeiss Milvus Distagon T* 18mm f/2.8, Processed in Adobe Lightroom CC, Photoshop CC, and Alien Skin Exposure X  (use code "dustinabbott" to get 10% off)
