It's probably best to regard this as a composite - the best Milky Way nightscape photos always treat the landsacpe separately, of necessity, even though I only moved the tripod a few feet to the right to compose for the road.
Road and mountains: 4 frames at 2mins each
Sky: 12 lights at 2min each, blended with calibration frames from previous scenes with the same lens, stacked in AstroPixelProcessor and light-pollution removed in APP and siril.
Both aspects of the scene were joined in Affinity.
Available as prints, cards and other products.
