Description

It has been so hard here lately with the weather, fronts from every direction, gaps in the cloud, which then disappear... for a while. Twice I have had rain cover the scope and all the gear - worrying! Very tired of it at the moment. This image was 34 subs taken at 3 minutes long each, through high murky mist. Integration time was 1 hour 42 minutes. Thanks everyone...
