Thanks all for the nice comments.
37 frames at 3 minutes = 111 minutes so less than 2 hours.
6 dark frames ( I hate wasting time with these, not sure they matter with DSLR), 20 flat frames (they do make a difference) and 20 bias (they work with flats).
Not that much time, when I get in Bortle 1/2 sky, I shoot as many subjects as possible in a night.

The amount of stars we have above our heads is truly incredible, magnificent shot.

Another jaw dropper, indeed.

This is just so gorgeous and a technical masterpiece.
