Default Failed attempt at Milky Way

Close but no cigar.

This was my first attempt at a Milky Way Arch photo.

I need to either use a wider angle lens, aim higher or combine two rows of pictures instead of just one row.
It's just so darn dark out there when I'm taking pictures.

14 pictures - 28 mm, f/3.5, 30 second exp, 6400 iso.
Sony A7 28-70mm kit lens.

G'day RR

Please put the tissue box away - there's nothing here to beat yourself over the head about

Okay - your "visual image department" might have something different in mind, and yes, you can have a second go at it ... but this image is more than okay for what it is

I agree that 28mm is not the most 'perfect' lens for sky-wide-angle stuff like this, and a 14-20mm "might" do a better job, but the economics of getting such a lens for occasional use might not justify it

I'd suggest you keep goin' and show us more of your shots
