Or the 24/1.4.

Though the 15-30 and perhaps the 11-18 may also be equally good, though more expensive and in the case of the 15-30, much larger.

Did you purposely use a focus of less than inifinity? Stars are all at infinity, you shouldn't use less than unless the markings on your lens are off(which they can be).
But for stars you should focus by using live view to zoom in on a bright star. Adjust the focus until you the star is as small and sharp as possible...that's what you should consider infinity.
Also some of the reviews I saw of this indicated that it was soft until f5.6, so if you were shooting wide open, that also might be part of the issue.

I'd choose the 14mm or 16mm Samyang's over the fisheye for astro.
