Description

Second image with the new mono rig (winter in the Pacific Northwest 😥), and very much learning the ropes of LRGB and SHO. I was pleased with the nice vanes and dust that came out. The camera looks to be quite incredible with the right skills, equipment and conditions. So far I'm very pleased with it and excited for better weather 😀.
