Description

Another image taken from the oh so gorgeous skies over the Tonto National Forest in Arizona... with my lens stopped to let in 36% less light, a portable tracker limited to about 90 minutes of imaging time, I have been able to get greater depth to my images than with a proper mount and longer imaging times from my normal imaging site in Wisconsin. My previous efforts simply did not reveal the details of the interstellar dust clouds that are so abundant in this region.
