      Description

      Have been wanting to shoot this from darker skies for a long time. I have struggled with one in 2015 from my backyard and it was a losing battle.
      We had few string of clear nights without moon this week and I figured I could snag this one. Always a stunning field with tons of dust and it does not dissappoint. In addition to the dust, the starfield is bright and colorful with the red and blue giants dominating the field.

      This is a two panel mosaic .
      Each panel has
      L - 36x10 minute subs
      R/G/B - 14x5 minute subs
