Description

Tarantula from my backyard in Belco, ACT, Australia on international moon viewing night (or whatever it was)... moon was making its presence felt for sure with the Oiii.

Set it going as I turned in for the night, collected nicely over the 6 hours til wake up. Tossed 4 or 5 subs of each channel, ended up with 24 x 240s in each of Ha, Oiii and Sii.
