About this image

Last night on a short staycation and I found a field with a clear view South with little light pollution so decided to try and shoot this.  Very low and had battery issues/balance issues that meant I could not use the camera cooler/had star trails that I have tried to fix in post processing.  Very happy though to have had a chance to capture this beautiful and crowded area of space.
