Description

First run at the Iris Nebula. Only 3h30 during the darkest hours of the night. In Belgium during summer the night lasts just a few hours. The subject will definitely need more capture time. I think at least 3x more to reveal the clouds in the dark nebula. If it is even possible considering the local light pollution... :-(
