Description

This is image is a collation of 120 lights captured over August and beginning of September 2019.
20 hours in total... spread over the 3 fRGB filters.
3 unregistered galaxies can also be found in the background (right side and bottom left side).
Struggling with my color blindness, I had to take extra care of not touching the colores after color calibration.
