    Since you asked, here a some pix shot using the Nikon AF-P DX 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR lens. They've been tweaked for lighting and cropped to 16x9. I've never tried the lens in low light but it does fine in the sunshine...kinda like me.

    I wonder if the forum has a hiccup. The EXIF is only visible thru a second EXIF reader, not the one used with Nikonites. I can see you were at 13mm for 20 seconds. So how do you like the Tokina lens? Is it performing the way you hoped? Nicely captured!

    One more question - can you see any of the stars in the Milky Way just with your eyes when you are out there? We have so much light pollution here we seldom have more than a couple of stars visible in the sky. When I was a kid visiting my grandparents in the country, many stars were visible nightly including the Big Dipper.

    I had a long post, but I deleted it after re-reading your post.

    The Milky Way looks like light clouds. After it got dark enough, it ran from the horizon past zenith. Enough to have an arch to it. There are lots of clusters and stars that you can see, but the cloudy, diffuse light it what makes the Milky Way.

    I think the Tokina performs well considering the person using it. Anyway, I had suggested a long exposure pointing at Scorpius until I read your post again and saw that you can't even see the Big Dipper. I am lucky that Scorpius rises over the mountains, and they help block the lights of Orange County and Los Angeles. Disadvantage: No horizon.

    I forgot to mention that the Milky Way image was 3 images stacked.

    Thanks for the info! On most nights that aren't cloudy, I can see what I assume is Venus (obviously a planet) and one or two other bright lights in the sky. That's pretty much it. However, there were a couple nights this summer when I saw at least a dozen stars - so the sky immediately caught my attention. But that was the extent of what was visible. This entire area of Pennsylvania and New Jersey is urban and suburban for miles on end with lots of light pollution and smog.

    It is getting worse around here, and they are adding LED street lights without appropriate hoods, so they light up everything. As much as I love sunlight, I love the night sky. When my brother first moved out into the 'country', there were so many stars, I could barely ID the constellations, and the crickets and frogs were so loud you couldn't hold a conversation.. Now, it is glowing disaster of a night sky and not as many night critters. BLAH
