First Attempt at Star Photography

Had a little free time after dark the other night so I decided to attempt my first star photo. I headed down I 59 South until I felt it might be dark enough, stopped in the little town of Beasley, Texas.

This one is processed with a tweaked Lightroom preset created by Dave Morrow, an experience star photographer.

I had hoped to get a shot of the milky way but it was still too bright. I referenced a light pollution map more recently and apparently west Texas is saturated with light pollution and I'm right in the middle of it.
