No, I would buy the Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 IF ED UMC Lens For Canon. It is considered one of the very best astro lenses made. For sky phots you want a fast wide angle lens. Unless you are shooting 'close' objects like the Moon objects are so far away no camera tele lens is of any use. Even the planets require a real telescope for the brilliant photos you see.

Agree with Earnie.  The bang for your buck here is high. I own the Rok 12mm f2.8 which provides 180* FOV.

The 14mm provides 115* on full frame

There are images all over the web which you'll see are very sharp.

" I own the Rok 12mm f2.8 which provides 180* FOV."

Another astro favorite. I'm good with either. Exactly what you need for deep sky photography.
