The Orion Nebula & Running Man - Simon Lewis

Posted by Stellarvue on 7th Mar 2019

This StellarShot of the week was submitted by Simon Lewis. He is the first Kiwi with the honor of being selected for our StellarShot. To “Own the Night,” Simon used his Stellarvue SV80ST. We are a bit envious that he’s in Summer now, while many of us are still under the clouds of Winter. We want to thank Simon for sending us such a fantastic image to share with the Stellarvue family. Simon also sent a photo of his rig, which we love seeing as well. We hope you enjoy his image as mush as we do. Here are the details Simon sent with his submission:
