Another LRGB attempt from home but it's becoming always more and more difficult to image due to light pollution.
However, I can't stop my passion for LRGB pictures and continue to insist despite the conditions.
Hopefully the locals are reflecting slowly on this topic and I hope that situation can change in the coming months if they reduce the pollution by turning the lights off from 23h00 to 05h00.
Let's wait and see
