Description

I spent one week in Puglia for my holidays and I tried to image low DEC objects, taking advantage of having them going down west on the sea ... no lights in that direction!

After failing miserably with Antares and Rho Ophiuchi complex, I was looking around, ready for something else when I realized that Saturn was so close to the two famous nebulae ... I could not resist the temptation!
