Description

Hi everyone!!

I want to share with you this rendition of M16 and their Pillars of Creation.

This object is a very tough one, firstly because its huge dynamic range, and sencondly because once you saw the Hubble image of it, nothing will compare to that magnificent level of details.

In the next months I will take a rest of astrophotography due to I have to move to another house, so this is my farewell for now, I've been waiting to image M16 since 2 years, last years I did a poor and ugly bicolor rendition, hope this is more rich and worthy.

Clear skies, and stay safe, Ariel.
