Some data I still needed to process from my journey in Morocco this year.

This data was collected June 2019 high into the Atlas Mountains with excellent SQM and sky conditions in general.
Many dust is visible from our milky way.

I still have more data to process from Morocco which I want to have completed before next year starts. Maybe I will return next year to collect more data with some upgraded components.

More the come soon :-)
