Description

I did a very similar image several years ago with the same camera and lens, but this time I used my Star Adventurer with shorter exposures. Here I used 175 light frames; Nikkor lens at f/4. A lot of work in processing. I'm practicing with the Star Adventurer because I don't currently have access to a GEM. Thanks for looking.
