Just 15x600s exposure with ODK 12" and Canon 6D on this absolute classic of the autumn sky. Processing by Edoardo Radice . I suggest to llok the image at full resolution. From Colle dell'Agnello, SQM 21,6+, Bortle 2.

Solo 15 pose da 600" per questo "classico" del cielo autunnale. Dal Colle dell'Agnello (SQM 21,6+, Bortle 2). ODK 12" e Canon 6D. Elaborazione di Edoardo Radice . Consiglio piena risoluzione.
