Here a beautiful image by my friend Luigi Fontana.
The Image was taken by Luigi during his 2019 expedition in Namibia.
The "Anteater Nebula" (NGC6726) was taken with "double tube" technique:
- Luminance comes from the FSQ106 with SBIG11000, used with L filter.
17x1200 sec. exposures
- Color is from a Canon 60D Baader with 100-400 IS II @ roughly 250 mm focal lenth.
54x300 sec. exposures

More tha 10 hours total exposure.
