Description

Another shortened project, due to bad weather. I imagined that winter was going to be paradise compared to the 4-5 h of astrodark during the summer nights : ). Well I managed to obtain only 7h on the California Nebula with these clouds that keep on coming. First experiment with the 75/15 setting for Oxygen.
