Description

This picture was captured with a DSLR over 2 consecutive nights. Each session covered 3 hours of data capture . In the end, I cannot tell a big difference between the 3hrs or 6hrs capture... Eventually, I post the 6hr image version. This original image is a little bit cropped compared to the native one.
