Description

I have visited this beautiful group last year to see the Supernova 2019ein in NGC 5353

This time I spent more time there to bring out more details.

What really did surprise me was that I had some ice on my sensor/glass coming up during the night. The next day I had to redry the desiccant tabs. This is fair enough after one year I think.
For this reason this stack is only from 50 subs. The rest of more than 100 were sacrificed to the ice.
Anyway, the image is much better compared to last year ;-)
