Description

I collected over 18 hours of Light for this beautiful galaxy.

Living from the center of a big city, with strong light pollution, maybe has been a waste of time, but i did it for my pleasure, not for the result.

Until now, I never even remotely collected al these hours of Light for a single subject, so has been a good test also for improving my capacity of shooting in different nights.
