These are really nice.
I'm curious though...I see that 'arc' in a lot of milky way shots on here. What creates that effect? Not sure if I like it or not...even though it looks great. But how is that done?

The MW is a straight line, but we are viewing it most often when it is not directly above. So it appears as an arc, this is a very wide field of view..
When it is directly overhead it looks more like this.
