Description

1st attempt at a nebula. I literally cannot believe what we are able to image sometimes, I had goosebumps when the first sub came through!

I live under a bortle 8 sky and had Ca. 98.5% full moon and I was still able to capture what I have. It was a beautiful evening, very calm, very clear and the seeing appeared to be pretty good, guiding was within limits so happy.

There is not enough time to capture the sky!!!!

What a journey!
