Sigma 8-16 for star photography?

No lens is a complete loss for star photography but lesser lenses require darker skies, longer exposures, more stacking, more post-processing, and tracking mounts to get decent images.

One major issue with astrophotography is that the physical aperture (focal length divided by f-stop) really matters in terms of bring out the stars against the backdrop of the sky. By that measure the Rokinon 14/2.8 gathers nearly 8 times as much star light as the Sigma 8/4.5.
