Description

Decided to retry the Sculptor Galaxy again, this time the clouds didn't cut me short! I think these small little galaxies really do push my scope to the limits as the details in the galaxy are fairly minimal. This was also my 4th day in a row of perfect nights and astrophotography, thinks thats a new record for me!
