Snuck 15 minutes down the road to snaffle this shot. I have a slightly alternate composition that works for me as well. I will post that in due course.
I feel truly lucky to live where I do and to be able see the milky way with the naked eye (of course, not to this extent, but it is blatantly obvious from my front door on a dark night).
I'm in need of a wider angle lens, this was 4 images stitched together to get such a field of view.
