Peter says: “From my lo­ca­tion this tar­get is fairly low to the west dur­ing March, so only be­tween two and three hours of imag­ing was pos­si­ble each night be­fore trees and a street­light started to in­ter­fere. I’m re­ally pleased with the re­sult­ing im­age as it shows a lot more de­tail than my pre­vi­ous broad­band at­tempt and I think this one cre­ates a very brood­ing at­mos­phere.”
