Milky Way first attempt
2

Last night I finally made the effort to photograph the Milky Way. Conditions were perfect here in northern Ontario but I had to drive an hour to get to dark sky.

This shot was taken with my new Sony a6300 and my 16-70 f4 Zeiss. Exposure was 20sec f4 16mm 8000 ISO.

Focusing was a challenge for sure. But can someone suggest why the MW is not more obvious in this image than what I've seen in many others?

Any other comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks.

John
