Via Láctea (milky way)

Hi folks. I wanted to do some night sky photos for a long time, and finally I have done. I live in a small town here in Brazil, and got away for about 20km out of the city to avoid light pollution.

My camera is an old Nikon D60 with crap lens 18-55mm 3.5/5.6. My friend has a modern Canon, but it's a compact G16. Well, what can I say... tons of grains. With my Nikon I had to expose for about 50" to 60". I developed the photos with open source software Darktable. After all, I enjoyed so much the experience.

Trying Lightroom in this one, it seems to be more intuitive:
