Wow, that's really beautiful
I was trying to get similar results but i don't know why it's not working
Is the standard 18/55 lens in Nikon D5200 can shot image like this ? or need other lens ?
Thank you, davidlogan.
As Nicole has suggested try looking at Samyang 14mm 2.8 lens if you want something faster and wider. This lens is a good perfomer and quite inexpensive.
Also try to find a dark place to get the best out of the image, as mentioned before by Peter & Nicole. You can check different sites like this.
I also use a mobile app called Stellarium to get information regarding Milky Way position and position of the moon (you would want to have a moonless night).
Feel free to ask as many questions as you want and we will try to help you
