I only got 31 minutes of data before high cirrus clouds came in on me…I’m surprised at how well it turned out considering it sits very low in the sky and I was shooting through a lots of hazy muck on the horizons that night.
I almost did not bother processing it, but glad I gave it a go anyway, picked up some nice dusty details too!
