beautiful. I would suggest to add a bit space on the right next time and alos a bit more foreground.. also the white ballance is a bit off (a bit to warm). Otherwise well done. 3 stars

Thanks for the reply Fabian.
It is one of my first attempt to astrophotography and comments like your are gold!
I honestly struggled to understand the correct white balance as my Olympus tend to give a too warm reading when shooting in the dark. I'll keep that in mind for next time

Have a look for a fellow by the name of Richard Tatti. He has some easy to follow tutorials on youtube that are very inspirational.
The white balance can be corrected in camera by selecting something around the 4000 to 4500k . The image is composed pretty well, has the mountains been lit up by the moon? if so it works well and if you get back there with a bit more experience it would be great to see the before and after shots.
