Description

The Pipe Nebula is a really large dark cloud in the center of the Milky Way, Southeast of the Lagoon. I shot it during my latest panoramic and processed it separately here. There are many interesting objects! I will revisit this region again to collect more data!
The snake nebula also joins the party in the upper part! :)
