After almost two decades living under seriously light polluted skies, the wife and I made a trip out to a pretty remote part of west Texas. I haven't done any "real" astrophotography in a very long time as after a lot of research and questioning, I took a gamble on a Rokinon 20mm f1.8 and bought it for the trip.
We found a particularly dark site and I exposed about 20 frames. Looking at the results, I'm torn. On one hand I like the way the unenlarged images turned out. On the other hand, when I examine them at 1:1 the stars are not the pinpricks I was hoping for. I'm attaching a couple of representative pictures. I someone with more experience than I (that will be a large universe) wouldn't mind taking a look at them and tell me if I should be able to expect more out of the camera (a D750) and how I might go about getting it. Many thanks in advance.
