Thanks Paul!
Yes, I did use a tracking mount (Kenko skymemo) and a wide angle (14mm) Samyang lens.

Here in Arizona if I go out of the city, I can clearly see the milky way, and some detail, but not as much as you can bring out with a long exposure on a good camera. It's still beautiful and amazing though.

Well I'm not nearly as good as you guys are but here is my first attempt at it. I did a vertical panorama with 4 30 second exposures. Not sure how you guys get such great colors in your though. Would love to learn that trick.

Chris,
That is a very good shot. As far as the colors go, it doesn't look like you captured the galactic center. That is where most of the brighter, more colorful areas are. Around here, the core will be most visible to the South, close to the Horizon. It is best viewed from July thru September.

All of mine are on a stationary tripod, but I've heard others talk about using this (external link) for tracking.
