Description

NGC 7000 and IC 5070. Taken at Skull Valley, AZ and Kartchner Caverns State Park in Benson, AZ on June 18th and June 22nd, respectively. Wind and poorly positioned trees made this a real headache to acquire, so I was surprised that the result was presentable. I created a custom kernel to fix the star shapes via convolution.
