It was really hard to take this picture, just a few degrees close to the Popocatepetl volcano crater, and minutes before an exhalation. It was impossible to watch it with naked eye!! even with 15x70 celestron binoculars, so I took this picture using a Canon 7d 28-135 mm lens, f6.3, ISO160 and 6 seconds exposure.
