the-heart-nebula-1536x1133 The Heart Nebula in SHO - Αστροφωτογραφία - Ρόδος, Ελλάδα


As new to astrophotography I try to find my way to post processing and also to find out how I like the final images I make. After 46.2 hours integration the image still no so crisp as i want it, because i believe of the poor optics.

Thanks for visiting!
