Last night I took my first astro picture with my own equipment from La Palma. My object of desire was reflection nebula Messier 78 in the constellation Orion.
After quite some unsuccessful attempts in the past days and nights (because of some technical problems, strong wind and clouds) this was a very big moment for me, and I am proud to show my first result here 🙂
