Description

Thats for now the final version of the Lagoon-Trifid widefield image. I collected some more data two nights ago when it was surprinsingly cooler (23°C) and less dust/aerosol in the air here at the Red Sea coast. The days become more and more hot, moisture and a lot of dust is in the sky too. Winter is clearly over in Arabia.
