Description

After 8 years into Astrophotography, and 4 years to actually get this shot...I can finally say mission accomplished until next time where I hope I'll manage to make it even better

So, a couple of weeks ago, we had a really nice opportunity to make some Astro, and definitely, it was my best chance to get this shot...
After some misses, a few hours of Posttreatment, here it is, in it's glory
