Currently I am on a vacation and I decided to shoot the stars. In my current location (Sun Valley, Idaho), the moon is right near the milky way, making it a bit difficult to capture it without it kind of "blowing out" or over exposing it seems. However, it is faint in the shots I have done and it is the first time I've even caught a glimpse of the milky way so I want to salvage the situation I am in.

I have 14 light frames and 7 dark from last night, all were shot at 400 ISO though, with a 35 1.4 at 1.4 because the moons light was lighting up the sky. I do have foreground objects so is that why everytime I throw it into DSS I get a smaller, thin strip rather than my entire shot?

I'll probably move one of these nights outside the city too where there is no light pollution from using Dark Sky Finder and try shooting again. But regardless, it would help if I could get some input.

Here is one of the 14 light frames, edited in LR and PS to make the stars stand out a bit more for an idea of what I have...
