Alarm went off at 2 am, stumbling around in the dark not fully awake I managed to get this image. Focus is soft. I was taking shots and zooming in on the stars on the back of camera after each focus adjustment. Once I was fully awake I realized I should have been using live view. I've gotten used to the laptop and forgot some basics.

 

35x3s, iso800 on a tripod. D7200 @ 80mm

Great shot, especially for less than two minutes total exposure.
