I usually shoot Wildlife only for the last 10 years. But last weekend, it was so hot and it was the only cold place to go was the beach. So I spent a little time reading about the Milky Way. I have never shot anything dark. I saw only a dark sky and a bunch of stars. I could not focus on anything. So I was shooting guessing and hope for the best :) Let me know any tips or tricks I will try again soon :)

Sony a9ii + 24mm f1.4; ISO2500, f2.8, 10 seconds
