Great field of view. This area is lovely. I concentrated on the bottom section last year. If you flip it up, it looks like a dancing figure: https://www.astrobin.../full/frdxs0/D/ Perhaps Shiva or Durga.

Wow - what an impressive FOV and image! The stars and star colors are amazing making the LND stand out that much more.
