M11 Villihanhijoukko - 22.8.2015 at 00.30 - 22.8.2015 at 01.10 Mäntyharju Observation number 41349

Visibility III / V

Ari Ollikainen, Konut tählet, Jaala

The group of wild geese is quite challenging to photograph due to the low altitude of the object. There was quite a bit of a fight to be had with focusing and tracking, and the focus didn't really seem to be quite right. The double star in the center doesn’t stand out either, because I wanted the dark parts of the Milky Way to even look like a whit.
