Description

I have been sitting on this data for almost a month. After getting the long focal length setup going, I find myself interested like a kid in the Edge targets and what to shoot with it vs this setup. 

Finally dragged my feet to copying this data over and processing it. There is a lot of dust in this area obviously, and processing it required several iterations. 

Hope you like this result. Clear skies!
