Milky way over Enschede

It couldn’t have been longer than 5 minutes, but I got my best 2 shots of the Milky Way so far. With again just a camera and a tripod, focussing went quite smoothly and locating the Milky Way has become a fairly straightforward job by now. With ISO at 6400 (as sensitive as my camera gets) and exposure time at 20 seconds (maximum without visible trailing at 18mm), I barely had to do any post processing to get proper images.
