The Great Magellanic Cloud (CML)
It is the largest of the nearby dwarf galaxies of the Milky Way, located only 160,000 light-years away from Earth.
The Great Magellanic Cloud has several objects of great interest, as is the case of the Tarantula Nebula that stands out in the cloud.
I believe that this record was one of my best with a fixed tripod!
That night I had a good heaven!
I did the pictures of the beach deck and there was very little wind.
