First Milky Way of 2023

It is Milky Way season, the time of year when the core of the Milky Way becomes visible in our section of the world which is basically late March or so through late summer for the US. At this time of year the core rises around 1 AM but doesn’t get to full height until closer to 4 AM. I have been looking to head out and yesterday a “cold front” came in and cleared out the skies so I decided it was a good time. There were a few fails along the way, but I ended up with a new Milky Way spot only an hour from the house with fairly dark skies. I am still learning how to edit these photos as it is very different from nature/cityscape photos.
