Image Details:

Wanted to do a few wideshots of the Milky Way to see if I was able to catch some dark nebulosity.
Centered on M52 which a very dense part, just to have something to track on.

Got plenty of dark dustbands visible, and the image is littered with objects such as starclusters, and Andromedagalaxy also visible, and some red nebula to the left in the image. Doublecluster also visible in the far right corner.
