NGC 4463 was the pretext for a test.

I wanted to see what my Tamron 70-200mm + 2.0x teleconverter could do.

I chose the constellation Musca, a region bordering the Southern Cross, located in the Milky Way and with dark nebulae.

On the image, we can see on the top right a part of Coalsack, and on the left are dark parts representing the Musca cloudy complex.
