Description

Took this picture from my garden 3 km outside our small town.

The pictures were taken unguided with an old Vixen motorized mount and a 130mm reflector I got in an auction as junk (and then cleaned and collimated).

Please leave comments or suggestion on how to improve.

Thanks for watching!
