Description

With several hurricanes coming up the Ohio and St. Lawrence valleys there have been very few clear nights here in Michigan. When it finally did clear up a bit the moon was out, but the Helix nebula was on my list so I shot it with the L-eNhanced filter to eleminate as much moonlight as possible.

Shot on October 27, November 2, November 3 and November 4.
