Description

Had a couple of hours without clouds :-)

What to "shoot" in the bright moon light, the night after a full Moon event?
The choice was M37, a open star cluster & here is shown a combined parallel exposure effort in one image.

My home build observatory is placed in my front yard/in the "red light" pollution zone, have a look here,
Red Zone

Kind regards Niels
