Description

Two days ago, with almost full moon, I decided to do a test with the IDAS LPS2 filter in order to see how difficult it was to image a galaxy from the city in these conditions and I deffinetely suffered it. I think I will revisit this beautiful galaxy in the future in a night with proper conditions.
