Description

I published this pair of close up star clusters with my APM 107/700 here: https://astrob.in/339045/0/

This time, these objects are imaged with the Samyang 135 mm lens to get a wide field. I was hoping to capture a lot of small objects around, unfortunately, it's the big void. And despite theses hours of integration, I could not make up the gas clouds that I had previously obtained with the Ha.
