Description

Another tough target for me: the Antennae Galaxies! At my location they are visible only a few hours in spring. Theoretically. In practice there is always a lot of dust and other stuff like unwanted photons between them and my camera. So I'm quite happy with it, even the arms are visible, at least a bit :-)
Enjoy!
