Description

30x240" with NB2 filter (Bortle 9)

15x180" no filter (Bortle 6)

Second light with the Canon EOS Ra, and first light with the IDAS NB2 Canon Drop In filter from Hutech. Really enjoying using the Canon EOS Ra so far. I'd still call this a test, because I didn't plan so much, and for that reason did a pretty heavy crop to get the framing I liked. Clear skies!
