 Taking shots of the heavens is an inexact science.  A lot of trial and error.  Last night I went to the top of Indian Mound and set up tripod and camera hoping for a meteor or two.  In the middle of the city is not ideal for celestial shooting; the ambient light is ridiculously high.   One can, however, get reasonable results.   Above is the view of the Indian Mound Neighborhood... a little under 180 degrees.  Below is a shot looking straight up into the night sky.   F7.1,  ASA 2500, 3 seconds, 24mm, processed normally in Photoshop.
