..in the city, overlooking a brightly lit Home Depot parking lot, during a scorching Midwest summer night, thru thin clouds that glowed like Gotterdammerung. Unguided I might add since I could not keep a guide star going thru those clouds that continually swept thru the field.

6 x 5 minute exposure thru Baader 7nm H-a filter, 175EDF refractor working at F6 with TCC telecompressor, STL11K camera.
