Description

Just started over to take this beautiful nebula. Never thought that this one is that hard to acquire if using just a DSLR. First step has been, 24x300s in exposure. The following nights showed up in post-processing that there is hardly any data left under such a sky if working with a DSLR 1000Da. Finally 87 frames at 300s exposure each. C&C greatly appreciated. Thank you for watching
