Description

I started shooting when this was only 33 degrees high with a little bit of a moon shining. I really needed to use the Optolong L-eNhanced but I don't have enough backspace for even a filter drawer on the Apertura. The sky glow really shows on the bottom edge of this image.

I have an Astronomik UHC EOS APS-C Clip ordered and plan to re-shoot this once it arrives.
