Scutum and Aquila

Scutum and Aquila

I took this using a Nikon D5600 with a 50mm f/1.8 lens, ISO 3200. Five raw images were stacked and the resulting composite postprocessed in Photoshop. The lens will open to f/1.8 but this usually introduces an unacceptable number of lens distortions, depending on whether I plan to crop or not. The actual aperture was probably about f/2.0 or 2.2.
