Description

Here is the first light from my new ES ED127. I was only able to salvage about 65% of my subs due to poor tracking that night. Thor's Helmet seems to need a lot of data to produce a nice pic and I will come back to try again next year. This is my best of three attempts to photo Thor and it will have to do for now because I'm ready to move on to Galaxy season.

Check out the Starless mouse-over.

Thanks for looking.
