Description

Dramatic 4 degree OIII mosaic of the Wall in Ara with a on looker staying out of the way.
10 Panels taken over several nights last year from my Balcony
The imaging Window was quit small so I was constrained in the number of Exposures and duration
The RGB actually doesn't help offer much to this image
I am revisiting the area this year with a lot more data but I was happy with this.
