This is a summer photo that i initially discarded due to a serious artifact caused by the Tecnosky 1x flattener on the top right corner.Unfortunately i was lazy that night and i left the mount photograph on it's own so every single FITT immage had the same exact artifact.
Lesson learned...never ever ever ever leave the setup do the work for you on it-s own :D
