Description

Looks as if a star field picture with wide field DSLR lens, but actually it is an enlarged shot of a part of the Large Magellanic Cloud with the D=500mm, fl=1,900mm reflector at Chilescope. Shapes of the diffuse and reflection nebulae are exisotic, especially for people in the northern hemisphere like me, and colors of the stars are exceptionally beautiful there.
