Description

Shot from a red zone backyard with a half moon and sensor temperature around 30C. Not ideal but still a fun exercise. Half the subs were through a modded 40D and an f9 ED100 (with a Baader CLS-CCD filter) and the other half were though an unmodded 600D (no filter) and an f5 200mm Newtonian. Combined in Nebulosity.
