Description

This was my first attempt to photograph this wonderful object and my second picture with the Asi 1600 mm-cool. The image includes 20x30s luminance and 12x120 RGB subframes. By the way, I am very impressed by the low read-out noise of this great camera. It makes the image processing much easier.
