I had a first try at capturing the Milky Way and despite being in a light-polluted part of the country and the sky being a little cloudy, I was so excited to see the beautiful center of our galaxy! I'm looking forward to trying this again in a dark sky reserve. Pitstone is what's known as a Bortle 5 site - a suburban sky area. See the Bortle scale on Wikipedia here
