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
