A few months back my son and I had a great time at Camp Davy Crockett in TN. Away from the city lights, the Milky Way was clearly visible. Taken with Canon SL1, Rokinon 14mm f/2.8, ISO 6400 for 20 sec. Processing in Pixinsight and LR. These types of shots are taken easily with a tripod and DSLR. See my Getting Started Guide for some tips to make your own fun images of the night sky.
