Integrated flux nebula Sh2 73 in Hercules.

on Saturday, March 4, 2023
This cloud of dust is very dim especially since there aren't many bright stars nearby to illuminate it. The image is a stack of 41 6 minute exposures totalling about 4 hours. It was shot out in the Mojave Desert Preserve where the night skies are dark and the stars just leap out at you.
