90s with astrotracer for the stars without stacking (and I don't remember how long for the groud part), the photo processing is a bit "hard" but this is the first milky way I do

Nice sky. But what is this building in the foreground? I never saw something similar except in sci-fi movies

Nice sky. I'm always having problem making good night sky.
And about building... now go to shop and buy any furniture that will fit there good

Yes that's not really easy, here we need to do it on summer to see the milky way, look at the moon rise and fall to avoid it, wait for a weather without clouds, and also avoid too much air humidity.

IMO that building should be used again and again in these shots of yours, especially if you can capture some asteroids.
I would go as wide as you can, and get in closer so that you have just a portion of one of the bubbles (with window?) in shot, looking up at the MW. You could be in space then

That's a good idea !
And with a better quality than that also, I have not yet found the good night to try the astrotracer with the KP but it should be better, for the stars and for the "alien house"
