Description

This was a difficult target for me even though it is relatively bright. I had a hard time processing it and it shows a lot of noise. I almost did not post it, but after reviewing other efforts, I was encouraged that a lot of people have problems with the noise on this object. I think part of my issue was dew since everything was soaked after the end of the session. I have since implemented a dew solution that appears to work well. Maybe next year, I will go at this again, but for now, I am moving on.
