Description

Need to gather more exposure time.

In the second version the blue glimmer was reduced by using just 2 of the 3 exposures for blue channel.

the third one was destroyed by high clouds where i had massive halos on the exposure.

thx to AZ-Picture (Andreas Zirke, http://www.astrobin.com/users/az-picture.de/ ) and Fabian Mast ( http://www.astrobin.com/users/Fabian_Mast/ ) who made me think about the blue glimmer.
