Ha, GS! Love that horizontal Milky Way!

Here's another from the Bisti Badlands.

here's my first try at the milky way..

but how do I get rid of the "purple spots" on the lower left of the sky??

You can't, sorry. They are a result of noise in your camera. One thing I've found that helps is the color noise slider in lightroom (I bet Aperture might have somehting similar if you use that). This is where better gear is the only way to improve that area, but hey, why not use that as an excuse for an upgrade? :)

Would stacking not help before going out and blowing a load of cash on new gear?

Technically yes, but it's quite difficult and won't render the same results. Basically you would need to take multiple exposures of the sky and stack them, and then photoshop the foreground in. Stacking multiple frames of an ordinary milkyway nightscape wouldn't work because the stars are moving relative to the earth, which would render the image as a startrail more or less.
Additionally, stacking plus merging a foreground will rarely yield natural looking results, and it is very hard to get it all to look just right.

Second attempt now, starting to get a bit colour. Single exposures, no stacking.

I hear what your saying but there are many examples in this thread alone that say otherwise.

i went to south dakota over the summer and accidentally caught the milky way in some shots and have been determined to get some good pictures since then. i had been looking for some land for a couple of years and when i got back i went on a mission to buy before the election. i closed october 1st and the last few nights have been clear with no moon as i climb out of the blind. today i'm taking a tripod.
the milky way is what pushed me over the edge on buying some rural property. i'm 50 miles from any major city and the number houses around me are minimal. i can see the milky way with my naked eye pretty well.
i hope to contribute to this thread very soon.
