This a larger project that i started taken over 7 differnt nights with a modifed DSLR. The camera got relativly hot; up to 31 degrees while capturing HA which made it relativly difficult to handle the thermal noise. But I think I did pretty well and I'm really happy with the result considering that it was taken with a cheap DSLR in the summer.
