Looks to me like a reflection from the sunset on some clouds.
I think it is really cool

Folks I'm sorry for the intrusion, had no idea Mauna Kea on the big island was such a big deal. Just rented a 4x4 and will be at the summit tonight. I've got a 5d3, brand new 35 1.4 Art, tripod, electronic release.....

Shoot wide open, 14 to 18 sec, no more than 30, adjust ISO to taste, use mirror lockup..... does this sound like a start?

Never taken a shot at the stars before.... wish me luck

Camera/Lens info?

It was the 5DSr and pretty sure it was the 14mm -- but I will have to check tomorrow when I go back over to the office. If it is a different lens then I will update this.....

35mm is pretty tight on the milky way, if thats your goal. You could go early and catch it just as it rises for an arc shot, will likely need several shots to get it done so be careful to level the tripod. I haven't checked the moon rise/set times, hope it works out for you!

This was another one from the trip to Big Bend Park -- I thought this looked like a face in the mountain was responsible for the stars in the milky way...

Big Bend skies are DARK. Gotta get back out there this year and do that south rim hike again, best view in Texas.

Spent about 4 day and nights out in that area last year. Went with a friend that knew the area quite well. There are so many photo opportunities out there, it was fantastic. The only problem was getting up at 3 or so for the sky night shots -- then going somewhere to shoot the sunrise -- then spending the day working flowers, critters, birds, driving around figuring where we wanted to be that night -- then going somewhere for sunset -- then driving back to sleep -- made for very long days. Not to mention that Big Bend is a very long way from VA. Drove to Houston to pick up my friend and realize i wasn't much past half-way there. Now, after having made all those "complaints" I'd go back again quite happily....

I managed to spend nearly 40 years in Texas before I made it out there, and what a waste that was. I happened to go for the first time a couple of years ago right after hurricane Odile roared through (September of '14). I had a brand new case of the night photography bug and was much annoyed with the cloudy skies... until I saw the desert explode in color. If you can manage a trip in the late summer/fall after a good rainy week, I can't recommend it enough - not only is every desert flower blooming, but the rain brings the fauna out in force.

Know what you mean on the exhausting schedule, by the way. If you're not tied to the 'arc' style of shot, late summer offers another nice advantage - you can stay up a couple of hours past sundown, get your MW shots in, and go to bed!

First attempt at the MW. From Mauna Kei; wish I had the 24mm I just purchased. Suggestions for post appreciated.

Finally got some clear skies last night to do my first nightscape/widefield imaging of the core region this year, can't believe how awful our weather has been this winter, we even got 2.5 inches of rain in the last 3 days before it cleared up overnight.

Taken with my Nikon D600 (full spectrum modified) and Sigma Art 35mm f1.4 lens on a Sky Watcher Star Adventurer tracking mount (on for the sky, off for the foreground). 2 shots, 1 for the sky, 1 for the foreground, sky shot is 3 minutes at ISO 800 and f3.3, foreground is 1 minute at ISO 800 and f3.3. I used my headlamp to do some light painting on my car.

15 shots, 3 rows of 5 across, 10 for the sky and 5 for the foreground. Sky shots are 3 minute exposures at ISO 800 and f3.3, foreground shots are 1.5 minute exposures at ISO 1600 and f3.3:
