The Milky Way over Rockfish Valley, VA

With the modified Canon T7i, I mostly just use an 800 ISO for the night sky but while shooting early on May 25, 2019, I thought I would just try shooting with an ISO of 1600. On my third shot a car pulled into the overlook part way through the 30 second exposure and got the tree with its headlight. On reviewing the images I was going to throw this image out with the group but I kind of like this image so I ran it through Star Tools and Canon Digital Photo Professional and, even though it is not an award winner, I like it and so post it here for your review.
