Quote This is without any doubt our best picture as of yet! Even though we had very little time of capturing this (as the summers in Stockholm don't never really get any dark) we had only one shot. We were actually thinking of doing some drift alignment, but somehow our coarse fast polar alignment was almost dead-on! Thanks to this we were able to take this relatively mid-long exposure (almost 5 minutes), making a lot of stars coming out. Quote
