Description

This was the only wide field that I could think of that night. The Milky Way is still very low on the horizon and it's a beautiful image anyway. Since there wasn't much time left, I used f2.8 this time. For sharp stars and corners I would have to go to f4 but I cropped it a little bit and it's ok.
