Description

I got this gorgeous reflection nebula under the dark skies of Sardinia (how else to explain the paucity of the exposures with the results of the image). Needless to say it was all unguided, dragging the kit out from under the canopy after the camping went to sleep. Overall, I'd venture to say that the image withstood the test of time so I shan't be bothered with going after it all over again. Which is a relief.
