Description

This is combination of frames taken from Dragonoš ( Croatia ), Zselic ( Hungarz ), Daruvar ( Croatia ), Krivaja ( Croatia ) total drive over 1200km. But in all sites there were thin cloud so I almost gave up of m45 for this year.. But I decide to gather frames which is relatively good and this is the result.

In the end I gathered almost 8 hours of explosure.
