    I've been thinking about getting a very wide field lens for shots of things like the milkyway and larger constellations. I don't want to spend much for the following reasons.

    1) Gonna be used only for sky shots
    2) don't need fancy stuff like AF, IS, or USM
    3) Only needs to be able to focus to infinity
    4) I'm a cheap kinda guy anyway:)

    I use a 40D and I've heard something about the old FD lenses, but don't remember what that was. Any ideas for this purpose?
