Description

Indeed not a masterpiece, but only managed to get 50 minutes when the galaxy was very low in the sky, with bad seeing and ocasional clouds rolling in, ....however I am happy I got the chance of getting some subs of this beauty in the sky for the first time and share the results here at Astrobin. Sugestions, comments and crititique are welcome. Guillermo.
