Best practices for photographing milky way?

2 years 8 months ago #490882 by Zach Mosher
I noticed some astro photography questions here, however didn't see an astro photography section.  Hope it's okay to post it here.  

First off can you photograph the milky way with just your camera and let's say a 24-70mm lens and still get decent shots?  Or do you need to have telescope?  

Second, what in camera settings would you use?

Third and last question, should any filters be used to block certain lights out?
