Description

It's been awhile since I was able to get out to my local-ish darker skies site for some photon hunting. It was a work night unfortunately, so I had to call 2 hours good enough and pack it up and head home for a few hours of sleep.

This was taken at f/5.8 at a FL of 1153 mm and was cropped slightly
