Description

Or it could be a tardigrade, or possible Popeyes son Swee`Pea?

If it is the soul of Cassiopeia, the nebula should be black, as she and her husband king Cepheus of Ethiopia, sacrificed her daughter Andromeda to the sea monster Cetus😱

But isn't it what we do to the children today, as we send them out in a big, scary world with danger everywhere and there is no Perseus to save them.

Only themselves, their family and maybe the teachers.

This image was a struggle with the elements, mostly fog and dew.🤬

A little breeze would helped a lot.

In this image I added 1mm to the mechanical distance between the flattener and the camera, but is the correct procedure to subtract 1mm?

The pixel scale in this image is 1,35 and the correct should be 1,33.

Please feel free to comment🧐

Yes I can see, and understand, that someone will argue that the image is much too saturated, but I like it😎
