Milky Way

Id like to have a go at shooting the Milky Way, I realise that the common understanding is that larger sensors are more suited to Astro, but hey ho, Im going to try anyway...

I have a dark sky area in mind not too far away, and think I understand the theory (500 rule etc).

My current widest lens is the 17mm 1.8 - is this wide and fast enough? What iso can I push it to, and any m43 specific tips? Or am I wasting my time?!

Any example images youve taken would be cool too.
