Description

One of my first attemps of Deep Sky imaging using a modest wide field equipment. I took this picture on a trip to Caviahue, Neuquén, Argentina.

Moon was at 80% illuminated, ashes from the near Volcano was at the atmosphere, I wasn't able to see the SCP, so polar align was very badly done, bad focus, etc.

I reprocessed this image because it is one of my first ones, of course it is not a great image.

Clear skies.
