Description

This is my first time that i tried to capture a DSO under full moon... Im really surprised! I never thought that in those conditions it can be possible reach some not so bad result.

Yesterday i was only testing my guiding session after some eq6 mechanical adjustments due to temperature changing here in Calabria at 750 mt upon sea level: in summer temp can be 45c degrees and in winter sometime -16C!

7 frames of 10 min with Canon 6d unmodded at 800 ISO.
No dark
No flat (low battery... need a fake one!)
