After getting some very good input I have re-worked some of the Milky Way images from Grand Teton National Park. The biggest change is I used the new Denoise feature in Lightroom on the RAW file before any edits. I believe the noise reduction is significant.

This image was taken Jun 22, 2023 @ 4:05am. The location is the East end of Oxbow Bend, Grand Teton National Park. I used a Nikon D850, ISO5000, 10 sec, Sigma Art 14-24mm @ 14mm, f/2.8. I relalize many of the standard "rules" (500,300,etc) suggest I could use a much longer exposure time. I took images at 13, sec, 15, sec, and 18 sec and in all of those I saw more star trails in the corner than I was comfortable with, so I dumped them.

Nice work, I'm with you on the sharp stars - these look great. I like the cloud wisps that make leading lines into the MW.

The exposure is great, as is the sharpness of the stars. I used to favor longer exposures, but with the ISO capabilities of today's cameras, it's nice to be able to reduce the exposure times to prevent trailing.

The reflection of the airglow off the lake is awesome!

The sky, especially Milky Way core area and the spot of bare sky between airglow to the right of the core, seem a bit magenta & warm. I recommend cooling it down a touch. I usually end up between 3800-4700 Kelvin on white balance.
