Fagradalsfjall Volcano Eruption #1

A trip to Iceland in September, with high hopes to see the Fagradalsfjall volcano in action.

Still a work in progress, mastering the QHY268M with the Optolong LRGBSHO filter set. Seems like a setup with reserved filters is required for the Esprit 100 ED with the original flattener, in order to avoid strange reflections from bright stars such as Deneb or Sadr. Shooting a familiar target here.

Technical details at Astrobin.
