Description

This has been my plan for some time. Integrated flux nebula or nebulae consisting of dust and gas illuminated by the light of our entire galaxy. IFNs are quite weak and the easiest way to register them in polar regions. To get a good effect you need a dark sky and a large amount of material. The sky is getting worse and the weather did not allow me to collect the right amount of material. From what I collected, I was able to come up with such a thing.
