Here my latest combined test: Leitz Elmarit and Skywatcher StarAdventurer.

I'm impressed by the result: I took this shot from the center of my Town only 10 km from Brescia, a big city in northern Italy one of the most light polluted areas in Europe.

The processing was a real challenge!

Ecco il mio ultimo test combinato: Leitz Elmarit e Skywatcher StarAdventurer.

Sono impressionato dal risultato: ho preso questo scatto dal centro della mio paese a soli 10 km da Brescia, una delle aree col peggior inquinamento luminoso in Europa.

L'elaborazione è stata una vera sfida!
