::Nikon D3 shoots the Milky Way::

I just returned from the Texas Star Party (Fort Davis, TX) and we had a perfect week of clear skies...WOW! This was the first time for me to image the Milky Way with my D3 and it did a fabulous job. The shots were taken with the 20mm f/2.8 & 50mm f/1.4 at f/4 and the exposures were 4 minutes long (single exposures) at ISO 1250. The camera was guided on my Celestron CG-5 mount and the images were processed in Capture NX and Photosjhop. Please feel free to comment and I will answer your questions to the best of my ability.
