Milky Way results 12mm f2
22

Thanks to advice from G Dickson and Colin Smith I have ended up with 4 usable images, taken with the Samyang 12mm f2 - wide open of course - on the GX80 at 1600ISO. I had trouble using GD's method of focusing which involved the digital zoom, but eventually concluded I needed to use the marked line on the barrel which showed an improvement.  Whether it's the best achievable I doubt: I detect some small movement possibly of the tripod, but I'm content for the moment.

Cape Drepanon. I think the streak is a flare from a satellite.

Over the dinghy park

Out to sea

There was much more light coming from behind me than I'd been aware of at the time - I thought I was shooting silhouettes!

Now I need a better tripod, more practice at night with that lens, and an L bracket so that I can easily switch to portrait mode.
