Description

Cloudy nights can be a blessing : I found I was drifting away from the simple, initial pleasure of star gazing : the beauty of a "simple" star field and all it evokes. So here is one I found interesting, right under M78 - my main target that night, but clouds came back... Not so sure about my processing though...

10 x 60 second subs @800.
