Description

This is yet another astounding image captured with the Atik Horizon Beta test camera. What amazes me is that I captured this from extremely light polluted skies with nothing more than a light pollution filter and one shot color camera.

There is a strange bluish artifact just to the right of the horsehead..... i can't find that on any other images i googled for or on astrobin. What is odd, is that i took 5 other images that night and none of them have this artifact.....

A beautiful image nonetheless.....

Tried to correct the artifact and couldn't do it without major distortion, so just cropped it out of this version.
