Description

In collaboration with my friends Alberto, Fabio, Lorenzo and Samuele. (16 September - 17 December 2014)
This planetary is quite large and extremely faint. It was previously captured with much larger astrographs and very long exposures, so we knew it would have been a tough job, but it was fun and helped to set some limit to what we can do...
