Description

Really happy with how this came out, considering it was taken from a suburban "red zone" and with a quarter moon in the sky.

I was only trying to capture the Deer Lick group, but Stephan's Quintet happened to just make it into my field of view, so I did my best to incorporate it while still having a fairly OK composition.
