Description

So this is my first "remotely" acquired image. "Remote" in the sense that I controlled my telescope and camera at my home from my work location, which is approximately 315km east southeast of St. John's, Newfoundland, in the middle of the North Atlantic. I work for three weeks at a time on-board an Oil production platform.
