This is some old data that I have now processed (lots of time, bad weather :)). Shows the galactic plane creeping over the wall of spruce trees bordering the lake where we have a cabin.

It is a single exposure, 30 seconds, ISO 800, Nikon D90, Rokinon 10mm lens, Vanguard tripod.

The scene was imaged in the Spring of 2019 ~ 240 km north of Winnipeg, Canada.
