Description

I recently had the honor of being named MSI Computer Ambassador as an astrophotographer.

What a better occasion to test Creators products than to process the data taken during my recent vacation in Umbria.

Working with a 5K monitor is a whole new experience for me: there is no comparison with my old HDMI display.

The image was literally taken "poolside" with the goal of testing a Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens with the Baader modified Canon 60D.

The shape of the stars at the edges is far from perfect, I probably should have closed the lens by 1 or 2 stops.

I'll try it next time.
