Hello

Normally I make my picture from Brussels under light pollution. But, from one year ago I make a another choice :

I make the picture in h-alpha from Brussels, BUT, the RGB in Chimay.

Why : because the gradiant is more difficult to remove with lhe large chips of the ccd.

In Chimay the skies is better that Brussels. It's not perfect, but better.

The problem is the distance from my house (120KM far and 120km ago).

For this picture, I make the choice to go to Chimay, because it's only a lrgb picture, without h-alpha.

I'have some picture of the site of Chimay. I post it tomorrow, so you can see the medium condition of this site, when I try it m81-m82.

Why bad condition : the humidity and the high clouds is well visible on the picture of the site.

Clear sky
