Description

I had already photographed Acrux, this magnificent and important star for the observers of the southern hemisphere https://astrob.in/330482/B/
and it was close up with the 1200mm Tamron.

This time I used the Tamron 70-200 (200mm) to have a slightly larger map encompassing much of the famous Coalsack, the largest dark nebula in the night sky.
