I took this on my second visit to the autumn Kelling Heath Star Party, back in 2017. I wanted to try and capture the Milky Way and with this 2 minute exposure, got what I wanted. Despite the background noise, it is one of my favourite images to date. I'm hoping for the same 'perfect' skies later this year to try again.
