I used my old 300mm lens to get all sisters on the picture.
A lighter setup is also more easy to built up in this more and more cold days.
Unfortunately i couldn´´t make flats so i used the fitswork tool to even the background gradient.
I am quite happy with the result although it was a bit foggy and partially cloudy.
