Description

Kind a hard region to process. A lot of stuff going on, many, many stars. Probably will make a second try in the future.

The Astronomik CLS gave a little help with shades of reds.

The lack of more frames made it harder to process.

Image taken during the 8th Brazilian Astrophotography Gathering, at a farm, 100km from the national capital, Brasilia.
