Description

Just found some data from my La Palma trip last year that I had not processed yet.

At this trip I had taken two DSLRs but just one remote-control release unfortunately. While my second camera was running for long time exposures on another target with the remote control I couldn't go longer than 30 sec. subframes for this capture (the maximum to be set manually on the 6d), so I tried ISO 6400 here. Still a bit noisy but since I'm getting used to better processing software I decided to give it a try today.
