Imaged at F/4,

The area is fainter than expected and require longer exposures, but it is quite low on our latitude and I was afraid that will not manage to handle the background... I'm relatively satisfied with the result :) Waited maybe 3 years to catch clear night during this time of the year, when the area give maximum imaging time :)
