About this image

Selecting  from the  Cameras menu  Colour Balance a setting of Warm white Florescent  to attempt to correct  for light pollution and Haze.  Using the  standard  Auto white Balance  was  giving a  deep Brown over all cast.  All a question of trial and error.  to get the best out of  a very polluted observing site in  the garden at home.
