Here in northern Florida, January offers some of the best nights for imaging at the start of galaxy season. The nights are crisp, cold, and free of humidity. This particular shot was developed by processing 35x300 sec exposures shot at ISO 800 with my modified Canon T5i. The image was processed using Pixinsight and Photoshop.
