Description

Saturn meets M8 and M20 in a moonless night, a pretty rare conjunction to shoot from Northern Italy. Approximately 2.5 hours of integration (Ha-RGB) using exposures of different length to tame the high dynamic range of the scene (in particular Saturn and the core of the Lagoon). Shoot from a 19.5 Mpass sky.
