Lighting the Way - Milky Way from Malibu

I've accepted that my 20mm isn't wide enough for some shots to the point where I will have to occasionally use pano's to capture the full view of what I see. However with this scene, I'm not sure even a 14mm could capture this. With the MW getting more and more vertical, it's getting harder to fit the entire core of it into landscape orientation shots. This is part of a 5 shot horizontal pano (camera in portrait orientation) to capture the entire view of both the milky way and Malibu Canyon Road that winds through the Santa Monica mountains. The fog hung out on the coast during this time. We moved over to another spot maybe 10 minutes later and it rolled in cutting all visibility. Weather changes so drastically in this area. Definitely a fun place to explore.
5 shots with the Nikon D750, Nikkor 20mm 1/8, f/4, 15 sec, ISO-1600.
