-----

With confinement, chances for a travel to southern skies seems a little bit out of my reach, at least for now , so thanks to Wei-Hao I could enjoy working with the data of this beauty hidden for us notherners. Top-class data captured with a top-class equipment that seems even farther away from my reach, I must say!
