Description

The final instalment in the full-moon galaxy quest. It's probably crazy to try to shoot galaxies in a heavily light polluted area with a full moon out, but we have to take as much advantage of any clear nights we get as is possible. Incredibly, we feel that this is one of our better overall images. We must have gotten lucky with sub length, moon position, and the position of the object in the sky in an area with less LP.
