Description

It is hard to find a richer festival of colors, structures and objects in the sky, such as the nebula complex around Rho Ophiuchi. It is a very difficult object to capture from Poland, as it is available practically in March and April and even from the best locations it can barely break 10 degrees above the horizon. My dream was to collect good material and I did it this spring, from the best possible spot in Eastern Carpathians. Although the amount of material is very limited, the true black sky compensated for this inconvenience. I hope successfully.
