Description

After five months of constant rain, I managed to get multiple nights of clear skies. As I started this project, I noticed faint clouds at bottom left, but needed a lot more integration to bring them out. I just kept adding more Ha to pull all of the faint nebulosity at bottom left. Finally got it to a point I am happy with
