Description

This image is effect of five night sessions from 17 do 24th of April 2020

Seeing was very good by two of this sessions - and I recorded luminance in that time. During rest of time I registered color channels.

I collected in total 4000 frames of luminance but I've chosen 2200 for final photo. Only best ones to keep very good level of small dust lane details
