Astrophotography - Shoot the Milky Way

My first attempt at shooting the Milky Way via researcher Jennifer Clemons was attempted this weekend (at 4:00 am on Honeymoon Island). Basic requirements are: 
.. location must be away from all (any) external lighting
.. camera in manual mode (to be confirmed)
.. wide open F/2.8 or lower
.. ISO (to start) at 1200
.. shutter speed less than 30 seconds (to avoid star movement 'blur')
.. this is a trial and error process: shoot, check, adjust, shoot
.. remember, manual mode means YOU - not the camera controls all
