After 10PM, the Orion is about to set.

Superimposed another picture from 50mm lens to show the nebulosity.

I knew Vela has some interesting, huge remnant of an ancient supernova.

Did not expect to capture so much nebulosity.

It turns out the Loop was easier to capture than expected. In single 60 exposure, it is barely visible.


All the exposures were plagued by high clouds.

Clear skies!

The tower looks charming in the photos. Today it was adorned by Jupiter and Saturn.

From a different angle, the tower is adorned by the moon. A bit edit to the moon image.
