Description

These past nights in BsAs were dreamed for astrophotography : no wind, no moon and no clouds. For the last 3 nights I imaged the Prawn Nebula, IC4628, my main obstacle was my guiding which unfortunatley got worse night by night, but in the end I managed to capture some good data and I'm very pleased with the results.

Here's to celebrate our first image of a Black Hole

clear skies everyone!
