This image was taken with an old 20mm Nikkor lens f/3.5 that I've had for a very long time. It rendered the stars pinpoint sharp.
As David B. and I approached the McDonald Observatory and saw the sign "No Traffic" we were sure someone would come and run us off. We parked down and away from the telescope towers and tried not to use too much light in setting up the tripods and cameras. But no one came down and we captured some great images of the Milky Way with the telescope towers.
