Now finished this beautiful galaxy. Green was a little difficult because of clouds coming in. Learned a lot about my setup and gear during this sessions over four nights. Especially about focus drift. This Image was taken out of my backyard near Frankfurt am Main/ Germany. Bortle Sky 6_7. Hope you like it...
