This is very similar to the first photo I posted on here, but this one was taken with an 11-20mm lens, at 11mm, and the older one was taken with my kit 18-55mm lens at 18mm. This was taken on October 13, 2017, from a much darker place than my back yard. It was while I was in the Ouachita Mountains in Oklahoma. The Andromeda Galaxy and the Triangulum Galaxy are about 1/3 of the way up from the bottom on the right side of the Milky Way. Cassiopeia is obscured by all the stars in the Milky way, but is adjacent to the Andromeda Galaxy. The pinkish glow in the Milky Way beside the bright star, Deneb, is the North America Nebula.

Photo info:
Camera------ Nikon D5500
Lens---------- Tokina 11-20mm zoom
Exposure---- 12 Minutes, 11.8 Seconds
Aperture------ F:2.8
ISO------------- 200

Thanks. Glad to share. I like this part of the Milky Way because the stars are more distinct without all the dust when looking toward the central area. This area also contains a lot of interesting objects.
