Description

The winter constellations, Auriga, Perseus and Taurus are already available for imaging in the deep night. Provided the sky is clear, it is truly worth to get or stay up. In spite of 275 frames taken, I can't see a big difference to my previous image of the Orion with 100 lights in terms of noise and detail. On the other hand, it is a wide field at 28mm.
