Description

Mosaic with Galaxy NGC4372, Darknebula HMSTG436 and Molecular Clouds in Constellation Musca.

This area consists of regions of dense gas and dust. This cloud is one of the closest star forming regions to the solar system. The declination of this field is between Milkyway and the southern Pole at DEC -72. It can be observed exclusively from the regions of the very southern hemisphere. The Globular cluster is NGC4372 with a size of 18.6 arcmin and Mag 7.24 brightness.

Exposures:
19xR, 17xG and 13xB filter using a SBIG ST11K on a Takahashy FSQ 106 with 530 mm focal length on a Paramount ME mount.

All images were exposed remotely on the T12 of Siding Spring iTelescop Farm.
