Unusual shot made in two nights. 21 x 600s luminance (with CCD) the first night and then 26x600s color with unmodified Canon 6D the following night. Both with 12" ODK. The complex processing was a masterpiece by Edoardo Radice. From Colle del Nivolet (italian Alps, 2600 mslm, Bortle 1-2, SQM 21,4+).

Insolito scatto, realizzato in due notti dal bellissimo cielo del Colle del Niviolet (Bortle 1-2, SQM 21,4+). Luminanza col CCD (21 scatti da 600s) e colori con la Canon 6D (26 scatti da 600s). La complessa elaborazione è un capolavoro del "solito" Edoardo Radice. ;-)
