Description

Apart from the Antares / Rho region, the Caria Nebula is one of my favourite areas in the sky. This is only 40 minutes of 10 minute exposures. More of an experiment in long exposure photography than anything else. 10 minutes at 1600ISO certainly brings out a lot more than 2 minutes at 3200ISO.
