    Description

    Finally, The Hercules Cluster. Failed shooting last three years (everytime with some bits of the target before being shutdown due to the weather). This time I kept at it and threw a LOT of subs out.

    I couldnt get it to frame the way I wanted it. There are more interesting bits but I had to choose something :). Targets like these make me want a larger chip.
