Beautiful field Leo, great choice for the Tak!
These dusty regions are my favorites.
I’m always interested in how people choose a target - what brought this to your attention?
Congrats on a fine image.

Absolutely stunning Leo - all that dust and it looks like someone’s cigar smoke has wafted across the field.

They must have been pristeen skies to capture that.

@Rowland_Archer … 11 years I started photographing these dusty subjects with many problems (the pioneer was Thomas Davies) … this is a stroke of luck. He “accidentally” found it on a July night by aiming the SH2-64 in a blind way

@RobertM … 1100 km were covered for this image … the sky had an SQM-L between 20.36 and 21.01

Thank you
