M17 in Sagittarius

Imaging Marathon?

You've been a busy camper lately ... this is  nice..and very low in the sky... as i remember


Yes Adrien, I've been out every night that is clear.  And this image was low in the sky, but maybe the darker skies help.  I have many neighbors interested in my images.
