Description

Well, as I’m still starting astrophotography, my goals with this image were to see the capabilities of my suburban bortle V sky, and I did that by imaging a faint dark nebula.

I’m aware that there’s a lot of faint stuff to get from this part of the sky, which I didn’t due to light pollution and the relatively short time of my sub exposures. I’ll certainly revisit that region in the future in a less polluted sky!
