this is an old image taken about 2 years ago when i first got my qhy 163, image is in hoo and cropped heavily to show the eagle, and done with my old set off nb. filters which usually caused halos around srars especialy bright ones, but since the weather is not really letting me post new images, i thought i would post anyway.
